I recently attended a home buyer preparation class with my adult daughter, sponsored by the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center. While there, I thought to myself, â€œWow, every person that dreams of home ownership should attend a class like this.â€
The Hawaii HomeOwnership Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping perspective first-time home buyers to realize their dream of home ownership.
Topics covered include:
- how to set financial goals
- how to manage your money and save
- understanding credit
- getting a mortgage/loan
- shopping for a home
Some Federal, State, and/or County programs require a home buyerâ€™s certificate, and this class will provide it to you upon completion. The membership fee for this program is being waived while subsidies last.
Space is limited, so if you or someone you care about is interested in home ownership, go online to www.hihomeownership.org, or call 1-877-523-9503 (toll-free from the neighbor islands), or 523-9500 (from Oahu) for more information; or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the intake form.
