CreditSmart A Guide to Better Credit, Money Management, and Responsible Homeownership

Get the Facts on Homeownership

Many families believe they cannot buy or keep their home because of common misconceptions about homeownership. Freddie Mac developed Get the Facts on Homeownership to break down these barriers that prevent people from exploring the possibility of buying and owning a home or keeping their home if they face foreclosure.

Interactive Workshop

Get the Facts on Homeownership is a set of tools that facilitate an interactive workshop to dispel common myths about homeownership and foreclosure. The goal is that by the end of the workshop, participants will have the confidence and information they need to take the next step toward buying a home, and keeping their home if they face foreclosure.

The Rewards Are Many

Get the Facts on Homeownership is designed to augment and enhance the CreditSmart® curriculum or other homebuyer education programs that you currently provide. It can be presented as a stand-alone presentation or as a lead-in activity to CreditSmart or other Freddie Mac instructor-led workshops. Get the Facts on Homeownership will complement your existing homebuyer education programs because it can:

  • Help borrowers take the next step toward successful, sustainable homeownership.
  • Increase your visibility in the community as a leader and a source of reliable information.
