Homebuyer Education Class April 19th

“The Summit Combined Housing Authority serves to enhance this county by helping those who define our community attain a safe, long-term housing solution and build a community in which to thrive.”

Danny and I took the Homebuyer Education Class before we bought our first home and found it was very helpful.  In addition, if you are looking at programs like Deed Restricted Housing or Mortgage Credit Certificates, I believe that this is mandatory before you can qualify. Be sure to check out this course which is open and free to public if you sign up.

The Summit Combined Housing Authority presents their next FREE Homebuyer Education Class on:

Tuesday April 19th
8:30-1:00 pm
