Home Buyer and financial Education
Purchasing a home can be the best investment that you ever make. This is especially true when you have the knowledge and skills you need, and approach this important opportunity fully prepared to make the most of it.
Homeownership Education at NeighborWorks® Waco equips you to be a successful homebuyer and homeowner. We offer two pre-purchase classes and one post-purchase course:
Pre-Purchase Education – Our Financial Freedom classes help future homebuyers overcome credit obstacles and master their money. In Homebuyer Education, students learn the basics of the home selection and purchase process in seminar-style sessions led by professionals from mortgage companies and banks, title companies, home inspections firms, Realtor’s offices, and others. Check our calendar here for upcoming classes.
Post-Purchase Education – In our post-purchase class, entitled Sustain the Gain, homeowners brush up on financial concepts and pick up new tips on topics like insurance, refinancing, and avoiding foreclosure. Most importantly, students also learn to perform basic home maintenance and repairs in hands-on exercises.
Rental Program – NeighborWorks® Waco also provides quality and affordable housing through our rental housing program. We understand that not every client is ready for homeownership when they walk through our doors. That’s why we have created a lease-purchase program for families that are knocking on the door of homeownership. It is our goal to prepare you for homeownership by providing you with the counseling and education opportunities that NeighborWorks® Waco offers while also providing you with a quality home to live in.
