A Washington State Housing Finance Commission sponsored 5-hour class helps homebuyers learn how to purchase and maintain a home. Commission-sponsored homebuyer education seminars are the first step in purchasing a home. They are free and open to the public, include information about the Commission's first mortgage programs, down-payment assistance, and other loan programs; and they are accepted by all affordable housing loan programs as meeting or exceeding educational requirements
INSTRUCTORS HAVE ATTENDED TRAINING AND AGREED TO STANDARDS WHICH ASSURE THAT:
- Seminars are at least five hours in length, covering all major aspects of the home buying process.
- Seminars are presented in an open, unbiased format.
- Seminars use approved training materials and handouts.
- Seminars are offered by professionals who have attended the Commission's instructor training.
No direct marketing or sales presentations may be given either by the instructor or any guest speakers.
If you will be using any of the Commission's programs to purchase your home, you must complete the seminar before your loan officer can lock in your interest rate. Many people find they gain enough information at the seminar to successfully locate and finance a home of their own.
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL SEMINARS. Call 509-765-9206 x307
