APRIL - HomeBuyer's Workshop - St. Albans - Two half day classes

Saturdays, April 14th and 21st | 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM

NOTE: This is a split two part workshop. You must attend both halves of the workshop and a one on one counseling session, to receive your completion certificate.

The 7 ½ hour HomeBuyer workshop brings together experienced staff and local experts to cover the all of the steps you need to take to purchase a home, including:

  • How to find a lender and the right loan
  • Using a Realtor®
  • What is affordable to you?
  • How to stretch your buying power with special programs and incentives
  • What types of loans to avoid
  • Shopping for a home and making an offer
  • The home inspection
  • Your need for a lawyer

After the course, all Home Buyer Education customers are offered one-on-one counseling with one of our home buyer counselors. CHT’s staff can work with you to review your credit history and scores, help you develop a budget plan that works for you, and set you on the path to homeownership. Some people are ready immediately, others need to do real work to get there – but CHT’s counselors are here to provide the support to make your dream a reality.

CHT provides you with the tools you need to succeed at attaining and sustaining homeownership. Using CHT’s HomeOwnership Center substantially reduces the likelihood of being late on your mortgage payments or losing a home to foreclosure. Your home will likely be the largest purchase and investment that you make – learning what all the steps are and how the process works before you buy can alleviate some of your fears and help ensure that you make wise choices.
