The Housing & Education Alliance, Inc. certifies Home Buyers attendance at a live, class room 8 hour instructor led class. Participants will learn the fundamentals of the home buying process. HEA is a HUD approved Housing Counseling Agency, our curriculum is held to a higher standard and we take your education program very seriously. The Home Buyer class is part of HEAís My Home America Housing program.
Also, HEA is a signee to the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling which are national standards and guidelines for quality education and counseling services.
If you are considering purchasing a home (even if you are not a First Time Home Buyer) please attend the class as soon as possible prior to signing a contract of purchase of seeking a mortgage. We see far too many of our students who wish they had attended class well before the last minute so they could have been better prepared for the process.
Please Note: As classes are offered at various locations and we recommend you review the address of the location of the class you are scheduled to attend. If you call the office on the date of the class there will not be any one to answer your questions about the location of classes.
