HOMEBUYER EDUCATION

Am I ready to purchase a home?
I've been paying all this money in rent; should I buy a home instead?

Deciding to buy a home is one of the most exciting and important decisions you will ever make.  It can also be one of the most confusing! Let NEST assist you in having a successful home buying experience.

 

With NEST Homebuyer Education, you will be ready to purchase your first home when the timing is right for you and your family. NEST help’s you:

 

  • Decide if you should buy a home

  • Learn what credit is, and how it can help you buy a home

  • Know how to shop for a new home and build a team of professionals to help you

  • Review the mortgage process

  • Understand what to do before and after the closing.

 

 

When you participate in a NEST Homebuyer Education Workshop, you’ll learn to understand your household situation. We’ll help you find the best home buying options available for you. Our workshop will help you create a household budget and learn to keep track of your expenses.

Most home sellers require a pre-approval letter before considering an offer on a home; we will help you with that too!

 

Upon completion of the class, you’ll be prepared to work through the home buying process successfully and with the background needed to avoid a scam.
