Homebuyer Education Program
As a private mortgage insurer, we are proud of the role we play in helping aspiring homebuyers become successful homeowners, whether it’s buying a home with as little as 3% down or educating themselves about the homebuying process.
Introducing Finally Home!®
We have partnered with Finally Home!, a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Organization, to provide low-cost homebuyer education to our customers and their borrowers. Finally Home! offers a comprehensive curriculum that goes above and beyond the national industry standards for homebuyer education.
- Pre-Purchase Education. Available in both English and Spanish, this course includes seven, self-paced learning modules that guide first-time homebuyers through the entire homebuying process, from down payment to closing.1
- Post-Purchase Toolkit. Graduates of the pre-purchase program can also access free information on a variety of post-purchase topics, from home maintenance to preparing for natural disasters and more. (The Homeowner Toolkit can be accessed from the Finally Home! course dashboard.)
- Life-of-Loan Counseling. Homebuyers and homeowners who are looking for unbiased advice about buying or maintaining a home can also take advantage of free, personalized counseling from HUD-certified Housing Counselors.
