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.
Completion of a certified homebuyer class is a requirement for many specialized loan products, including NeighborWorks Montana loans. To receive a certificate, participants must complete all sections of the course and have a session with one of our certified homebuyer counselors.
