Thinking about purchasing a home lately, but uncertain how to go about the somewhat daunting process? From getting a loan to finding a Realtor to figuring out inspections, there are plenty of “must-dos”. It can get overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a logical solution. NeighborWorks Great Falls offers a class specifically for homebuyers, chock-full of information that will make finding and paying for your new home a bit easier. Whether you’re working with NeighborWorks to get down payment assistance, or you just want some direction and your questions answered, here are five great reasons to sign up for the course.

1. You’ll check off all the boxes, from pre-qualification to home inspections.

Buying a home is not, as they say, a walk in the park. If you aren’t accustomed to all the terms, steps and processes to make it a smooth sail, there’s a chance you’ll miss something and end up causing yourself stress. Attending the NeighborWorks class is a great way to make sure you check off the boxes and know what to watch for in the process.

2. The experts are on board to offer advice.

Would you take professional advice from just anyone? Of course not, and NeighborWorks wouldn’t want you to! From professional Realtors to lenders to title companies, the experts are fully engaged with each class session to answer questions and make sure you know what to expect in each step of the home buying process.

3. You’ll know what is important when looking for a home.

If you listen to the media hype, you might end up thinking farm sinks and granite countertops are what will make your home a great investment and make for a happy home. But that’s not usually true. Attending the NeighborWorks course is a good way to clue yourself into reality and what REALLY matters when buying a home. Things like what kind of mortgage you actually can afford, why to get that sewer scope and what closing costs to expect, it might not be as “sexy” as what you see on television, but they matter more, and you’ll learn why.

4. Not only is the class inexpensive, but it could also save you money.

Not only is taking the Homebuyer Education class a mere $75 per household, but the knowledge you receive could also end up saving you a lot of money, both on the actual home you buy and other expenses, such as inspections. It’s a great investment — you definitely will not suffer from buyer’s remorse!

5. NeighborWorks makes it easy to work around your schedule.

Worried that you won’t have time to fit a NeighborWorks class into your already busy schedule? That’s why the organization offers the class every single month and online at your convenience! They also offer free individual appointments to get your questions answered one-on-one specific to your situation. They’ll help you get in a position to purchase and then make it easy to get the facts straight on not only buying a house.
