Real Estate — How do you prioritize when you’re limited by affordability? From shopping and negotiating to contingencies and industry lingo, learn everything you need to know about real estate.

Closing — What fees and expenses can you expect to pay at the closing table in addition to your down payment? From the time you’re under contract to the day you receive your keys, there are many moving pieces that need to fall into place. Know the closing process before you dive in.

Protection — What does home insurance actually protect? What is covered, what is not? Learn about protecting your home and your assets and how to review your policy for additional savings.

Homebuying Foundations meets the homebuying education requirement for Individual Development Accounts (matched savings) and for many down payment assistance, closing cost assistance, and loan programs, after you’ve met one-on-one with a homeownership counselor.
