**It is mandatory as part of the registration, that the participant submit the Welcome and Disclosure forms, which we will be sending through Docusign, as well as a photo of their identification. These are necessary for creating your profile.**
Once you have taken the workshop (1 class, 2 sessions. Mandatory to attend both sessions), you will get certified. In order to receive your certificate of completion, we collect Purchase and Sale Agreement and Loan Estimate once you are in the process of buying a home. (We do this so we can help you ensure that all paperwork is in order, guide you in the process and to satisfy our funding sources.)
This workshop is approved by HUD, MassHousing, MHP One Mortgage and other lenders.
Once the class is completed participants can meet with a Housing Counselor and get a free Trimerge Credit Report. There is no cost to meet with a counselor.
**Please note that this seminar will be held live through Zoom. The participants are required to have a camera, keyboard, microphone and audio to "attend" the event.
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."
