What we're about

Many potential home buyers are intimidated about home ownership because they feel the process is complex. One way to minimize the fear of the home buying process is to attend one of our workshops that will arm you a high-quality road map for buying a home.

The objective of this course is to help answer the many questions you may have regarding the home buying process.

Borrowers who participate in special housing programs are usually required to successfully complete a home buyer education course as a qualification to entitle them to a reduction of the cost of mortgage insurance, down payment assistance, closing costs, and many more topics.

Through local partnerships (Curt Tiedeman and Caliber Home Loans), the Commission helps home buyers learn how to purchase and maintain a home. Washington State Housing Finance Commission sponsored home buyer education seminars are the first step in purchasing a home. They are free and open to the public, include information about the Commission's first mortgage programs, down payment assistance, and other loan programs; and are accepted by all affordable housing loan programs as meeting or exceeding educational requirements.
