COVID-19 Update

Due to concerns over COVID-19, the NWMT office is closed to in-person traffic at this time and all of our staff is working remotely. This is true for our partner network as well, but we will continue to offer all homebuyer services via phone and web conferencing. Please contact Logan at (406) 604-4557 or by email [email protected], if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Homebuyer Education And Counseling

The first step to creating successful homeowners is education. Educated homeowners stay in their homes longer, take pride in their properties, and have one-third less foreclosures. NeighborWorks Montana’s network partners across the state offer in-depth classes on all aspects of homeownership.

All classes meet HUD requirements and are taught by National Center for Homeownership Education and Counseling Certified educators. Completion of a certified homebuyer class is a requirement for many specialized loan products, including NeighborWorks Montana loans. To receive a certificate, participants must attend all sections of the course. Courses are at least 8 hours in length and are offered over the course of a full day or two-to-three evenings depending on the organization.

Topics covered in these classes include:

• Assessing Readiness to Buy a Home
• Budgeting and Credit
• Financing a Home

• Selecting a Home
• Maintaining a Home and Finances
• Financial Resources
