Homebuyer Counseling

To assist renters in their efforts to become home owners, the HOME Consortium contracts with agencies that provide home buyer counseling in the Consortium area. The counseling agencies provide a complete package of supportive counseling services throughout the home buying process, which empowers participants to achieve the dream of home ownership.

Services include credit awareness, acquiring budget management skills, learning about mortgage products and guidelines, the selection of a property and the post- purchase responsibilities of home ownership. Each counseling agency provides monthly educational home buying seminars and provides ongoing one-on-one counseling with clients, as needed. Home buyer counseling is required for all HOME Consortium Down Payment Assistance loans, and paid for through the program.

Below is a listing of the home buyer counseling organizations and their contact information. A home buyer may choose any of the following counseling agencies to provide their housing counseling, depending on which agency offers a schedule and locations that best fits their needs.
