What Do Homebuying and High School Have in Common?

What Do Homebuying and High School Have in Common?

Counselors who can help you succeed. A high–school guidance counselor might have advised you on what you needed to do to graduate and the path you might take toward your future. A housing counselor can advise you on how to become and stay a homeowner.

If you have questions like these:

  • What are the steps toward buying my first home?
  • What does it take to qualify for a mortgage loan?
  • The homebuying process is complicated. Can someone guide me through it?
  • How do I manage my finances so that I can buy and keep a home?
  • What type of mortgage might be right for me?
  • How much money do I really need to buy a home?
  • If I was turned down once for a mortgage, should I forget about buying a home altogether?
  • What should I do if I'm having trouble making my mortgage payments?

A trusted housing counselor can help you find solutions.
