First-time homebuyer education offered May 14
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Considering purchasing a first home?

Home Stretch is a first-time homebuyer workshop that takes participants through the entire home buying process. In one day, participants will learn about qualifying for a mortgage, financing a home, credit, shopping for a home, the closing process, basic home maintenance and affordable mortgage products that may be available to first-time homebuyers. Some affordable mortgage products, government loans and down payment and closing cost assistance programs may require a buyer to receive a Home Stretch certificate.

Homebuyer education is also offered as an online course. Framework is a new online tool to prepare for successful homeownership. Framework will provide participants with the facts needed to become a knowledgeable buyer. Many lenders have approved Framework to meet homebuyer education requirements. The registration link may be found at www.cmhp.net.

Central Minnesota Housing Partnership, a nonprofit organization providing affordable housing services to the central region of Minnesota, coordinates the Home Stretch workshop. The next workshop will be offered from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 14 at Brainerd Savings and Loan.

Registration is required and participants will receive a completion certificate at the end of the workshop. To register for the online Framework course or the Home Stretch workshop, contact Trista at 320-258-0681 and visit the website www.cmhp.net for more information.

Pre-purchase counseling is also available by appointment and is strongly recommended prior to taking Home Stretch. This is a free service to anyone who wants to speak with a certified homeownership counselor about their financial situation prior to buying a home.
