Homebuyer Education

Learn about the steps to home ownership and the resources that can help pave the way.

Our complimentary workshops for homebuyers cover everything you need to know about purchasing a home. We typically hold workshops over the course of two evenings. During part one, you’ll learn all the basics: financial best practices to prepare yourself for homeownership, what to look for in a lender and agent, and how to navigate the home buying process. During part two, we’ll do a deep dive into Washington State's down payment assistance programs. You’re welcome to attend one or both evenings.* Our goal is to provide the information you need to make the best decisions for you.
