By taking Homebuying 101, you’ll have access to first-time homebuyer loans with low interest rates and low down payment requirements. The certificate you receive from completing the course is also required for down payment or closing cost assistance programs that may be offered in the city or town in which you are buying.
This class is for anyone who is interested in buying their first home, whether you are already in the midst of the process or just starting to think about homeownership.
Each class will be a Zoom webinar.
Their feedback on MassHousing:
Jose Baez had heard a lot of negative things about getting a home mortgage but his experience getting a MassHousing Mortgage was nothing but positive.
"It went fine, really," he said. "There were no issues. I thought it was going to be difficult from what I heard other people say but I didn't really experience that. It's great," he said. "They (his children) love it. They have their own yard and place to play and we are very happy with how everything worked out. For anyone who has any doubts about MassHousing, they made the process easy. I didn't think it was ever possible to own our own home."
