Home Buyers Education
The Homebuyer Education Program is designed to promote long term homeownership by providing ongoing training and counseling inclusive of all aspects of purchasing a home.
Community Resources, Inc. has been providing Homebuyer Education to community residents for several years. This program helps homeowners and potential homeowners acquire skills necessary to sustain their home over the life of the mortgage.
Homebuyer Education is available to anyone regardless of income or homeownership status.

Borrowers are given materials and methods on budgeting and credit, how to shop for a mortgage loan, how to shop for a home and how to maintain their home and finances after a purchase.
