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 session will be held virtually over Zoom.
Their feedback on MassHousing:
"We are very happy and it was a good experience," said Aguinaldo of their homebuying experience. "We wanted a home of our own. I work two jobs and my wife also works but it is worth it to have your own home to raise a family in."
The Montronds were able to purchase their home through the city of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development distressed property program and they received downpayment assistance from the city.
