Statistics prove that homebuyer education contributes to successful homeownership. Homebuyer education teaches prospective homeowners about budgeting, understanding credit, shopping for a home and protecting your investment. DCHFA partners with a variety of HUD-Approved Housing Counseling Agencies throughout Washington, D.C. that offer free homebuyer education.
Our HFA Preferred product (see Highlights chart for details) requires applicants to complete homebuyer education. Our participating lenders will discuss this with each applicant. While other products do not require homebuyer education applicants pursuing other products may find it useful.
DCHFA has historically offered free homebuyer education to the community and it expects to offer workshops again in the near future.
