Are you a First Time Home Buyer ready to purchase your new home? If so, congratulations, you have made the first step by reading this blog. My name is Jenny Lopez-Martinez and I am a Financial and Housing Coach for Easter Seals Greater Houston. I would like to invite you to our virtual Homebuyers Education Classes where you will learn the tools needed to become a homeowner. We will discuss various ways to budget; every participant will receive a budget sheet at the end of session 1. The budget sheet is a tool used to help participants create and reach their financial goal. The class will also discuss the importance of having a savings especially if you are buying a home. The class will introduce the steps on how to pull your credit report, review your credit report and rebuild your credit. We will also review the mortgage loans products, the down payment assistance programs, and every participant will receive additional resources from Freddie Mac. This is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approve course and open to anyone who is ready to buy their first home. Since the classes are virtual, we are providing the classes in session 1 and session 2. At the end of session 2 or once both classes are completed, you will receive a certificate for your participation. We welcome you to learn more about and participate in our upcoming Homebuyer Education Classes.
