First Time Homebuyer Education

Preparing for Your First Home Purchase

SEHP is a Home Owner Resource Education (HERO) and HUD-approved homebuyer counseling agency.

Buying your first home can be one of the most exciting times in your life, but it’s also the largest financial commitment you have ever made and should not be entered into lightly. Our goal is to help make your first-time home buying experience great. Our homebuyer educators help walk you through the entire process so you are ready to approach and complete your steps to homeownership with renewed confidence. 

Topics include:

  • Pros/cons of owning
  • Personal budgeting and saving for maintenance
  • Credit management
  • Down payment assistance programs
  • Working with a lender and Realtor
  • Home inspections
  • Making an offer
  • Understanding all the fees involved in purchasing
  • Preparing for closing

Our free education services are offered in a personalized setting so we can be very specific to your situation. We offer both day and evening sessions, Mondays - Fridays. Participants who complete the program may even receive discounts on their closing fees for attending.
