We’ve all had to adapt to the new circumstances presented by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Some changes have been easier than others, but none of them have been taken lightly. NeighborWorks Waco has moved our signature Homebuyer Education (HBE) Workshop online to a totally virtual format. Our typical HBE is held on a Saturday and takes about 8 hours. The new system will allow attendants to complete this training in their own time, at their own pace, and in their own home!

All of the information is the same, but has been condensed greatly, since the format allows for fewer games, questions, and entirely eliminates the need for bathroom and snack breaks. Our virtual HBE takes about 3 hours to complete. Interested clients can sign up for the course on our website at nw-waco.org/event-registration/. Once signed up, a link to the classroom information will be emailed to them. Upon completion, clients contact our Homeownership Planner to answer and ask any questions before receiving their completion certificate.

As always, our HBE is totally free! In the future, we hope to include content from industry professionals who would usually be invited guests at our in-person class.

If NeighborWorks Waco’s HBE isn’t for you, we also have a partnership with eHome America. Clients can find a link to eHome on our website. EHome America offers virtual courses for both Homeownership and Financial Capabilities. Use code NWW49 for a $49 discount on their course material.
