Homebuyer Education May Be a Requirement for Mortgage Loan Approval

Some types of first-time homebuyer mortgages require completion of a homebuyer education course as part of the mortgage approval process. The Center’s Home Stretch© class curriculum is approved for this purpose.

For other class curriculums, you should confirm qualification with your mortgage lender in advance.
