MSHDA & HUD-certified home ownership education counselors are available from MSU Extension. These workshops help potential, current and future home buyers/renters understand the complex home buyer/renter process and learn the true costs of responsible home ownership.
This education is required for any local, state and federal affordable housing and down payment assistance programs.
Pre-Purchase / Home Buyer Education (six to eight hours total) covers all aspects of selecting, financing, and closing on your first home. Participants learn about the ins and outs of this important purchase. Spotting predatory lending and fraudulent practices are also discussed. Private one-on-one sessions are available by appointment in some locations. Michigan State University Extension believes an educated consumer will be more confident and successful with making important personal and financial decisions about homeownership.
