Attend a Homebuyer Education Class

Homebuyer Education Class is available to anyone who wants to prepare for homeownership. Homebuyer education is the first step toward purchasing a home, and an in-person class is required if you want to receive HomesFund downpayment assistance (only available in La Plata, Montezuma, Archuleta, San Juan, and Dolores Counties).

The HomesFund homebuyer education classes are HUD approved, CHFA approved, USDA approved, FHA approved, and approved by many other first-mortgage programs.

This class makes the home buying process clear and less stressful by helping you:

  • Understand the programs offered by HomesFund
  • Understand your credit score report and how to improve your score
  • Understand your monthly mortgage payment and closing costs
  • Select the best possible mortgage loan for you
  • Understand purchase contracts so that you know what to expect throughout the home buying process, and more!

Please be prepared for a $15 ($13.90 + $1.10 tax) workbook fee per household to cover the cost of materials when registering for the in-person classes listed below.

People NOT receiving HomesFund downpayment assistance (only available in Southwest Colorado), may register for an online homebuyer education class that costs $99 for an individual, or $150 for two people registering together.

If you are seeking HomesFund downpayment assistance please register for the in-person classes (schedule below).
