Do you want to buy a home, but don’t know where to start? You don’t have to feel alone. NeighborWorks Pocatello is pleased to offer residents of Southeast Idaho the “Finally Home!” homebuyer education class. Developed by Idaho Housing and Finance Association, the course offers participants an objective and detailed presentation of all the information they need to become informed and successful homebuyers.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Budgeting and credit
- Working with a real estate agent
- Obtaining loan financing
- Home inspections
- What to expect at closing
After completing the course, participants will be able to manage the home-buying process with the confidence that comes from having access to trusted sources of information, and an advocate who can provide guidance in reaching their homeownership goals. Finishing the course will also entitle the participant to a certificate of completion often required by lenders to meet eligibility requirements for various loan programs.
NeighborWorks Pocatello offers three options for completing the course:
- In-person course
- Self-study format
- Online course
