June is National Homeownership Month, and education is the best way to prepare to buy a home. Idaho Housing and Finance Association is celebrating Homeownership Month by offering free in-person Finally Home! Homebuyer Education classes throughout the state.
Buying a home is one of the most significant purchases most people will ever make. For first-time homebuyers, the process can be especially intimidating, confusing, or just plain scary. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Finally Home! Homebuyer Education is a resource to help make first-time buyers more confident in finding and purchasing a home. The class helps future homeowners understand budgeting, credit, loan types, closing costs and home maintenance. It will also help them avoid common pitfalls during the homebuying process.
