We get quite a few questions from first time homebuyer's & thought this would be a great offering for anyone who is thinking of buying a house now, think they might in the near future or even if you only plan on buying sometime down the road. This class will be very informative so tell all your friends & then let us know what you thought!
The College of Southern Idaho’s Community Education Center is offering the non-credit homebuyer’s education course, Finally Home, on Monday, September 16 & 24 from 6-10 pm, at the Twin Falls Campus. This HUD-authorized course is specifically designed for first-time low to moderate-income homebuyers and addresses some of the issues that potential homeowners face as they take the steps to purchasing a home.
The Finally Home Homebuyer Education program is an eight-hour course that takes participants from the “can I and do I want to become a homeowner” to “how do I maintain this important investment?” Potential homeowners learn the steps involved in making their biggest investment, including: who are the key players in the home buying process, why is good credit important, how to fix bad credit, how to apply & qualify for a loan, how to shop for a home, what happens at closing, the financial benefit of homeownership, how to avoid delinquencies, defaults & foreclosure & much more. Participants will receive a certificate of completion that can potentially help qualified borrowers take advantage of special programs offering down payment or closing cost assistance, the use of gifted funds or more generous debt ratios.
The cost to register in Finally Home is $20 and students can register at http://communityed.csi.edu. Class size is limited so early registration is suggested.
