We’ll explain how to best prepare yourself for homeownership, what to expect in the mortgage loan process along with learning the different types of loans available and mortgage loan application criteria. Learn about the steps in the homebuying process including shopping for a home, making an offer, the closing period and home buying professionals that will assist you along the way. In addition, learn about local programs available to first-time home buyers and the criteria that must be met to qualify for those programs. (This workshop satisfies the 6 hour education requirement for obtaining the Homebuyer Education Certificate for the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development’s down payment assistance programs and below market rate (BMR) ownership opportunities.)
