Homebuyer Education Classes

Navigating the home buying process can be confusing.

CPAH’s 4-hour pre-purchase education class will get you ready for the complex home buying process and help you make the best choices for your household.

What you’ll learn about:

  • selecting the right mortgage
  • finding the property that’s right for you
  • negotiating the sale
  • home inspections
  • insurance
  • property taxes
  • credit scores
  • interest rates
  • budgeting
  • home maintenance
  • the many details from contract to closing

…and much more.

We’ll also provide an orientation to CPAH’s Down Payment Assistance grant programs.


How to get started:

CPAH’s pre-purchase education classes are offered in both English and Spanish during the evenings and weekends. All classes are taught by HUD-Certified Housing Counselors. Class registration is required. A $50 non-refundable fee is due at the time of registration. You can register up to two members of the same household for one $50 fee. However, both household members must be registered to ensure space is available.

Those arriving more than 15 minutes late will not receive a Certificate of Completion. This certificate is required by some mortgage lenders in order to obtain a loan. It is also required to receive down payment assistance through CPAH.
