If you’re buying a home in Lake City with down payment assistance, you’re most likely going to have to take a homebuyer education class.
But what is a homebuyer education class, and why do you need to take it?
What is a Homebuyer Education Class?
A homebuyer education class, which most down payment assistance programs require you to take, is a course in which you’ll learn about many aspects of the purchase process. You’ll also learn the basics of homeownership, fair housing, and a handful of other important subjects.
The key for most of these programs is that the homebuyer education class must be taken through a HUD-approved agency and you must earn a certificate of completion.
