Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N), a Larimer County non-profit that helps families achieve homeownership, offers free monthly certified home buyer education courses to meet the growing demand for consumer education for home buyers before they purchase a home. The next classes are set for Feb. 11 and March 10.
Attendees who complete N2N’s one-session class leave as educated, savvy consumers prepared to become stable homeowners. Classes cover topics including tips for budgeting and saving for down payment, establishing and maintaining good credit, shopping for a loan, negotiating the price of a home, homeowners’ insurance, energy efficiency, and protecting your investment. Last year over 200 potential homebuyers attended.
Apart from offering sound advice, this class also meets the certificate requirements for CHFA, City of Fort Collins and Larimer County down payment assistance programs as well as the HUD counseling requirement needed for Fannie Mae My Community Loan Products. These local down payment assistance programs provide thousands of dollars toward homeownership to qualified buyers.
Register to attend the class by visiting Neighbor to Neighbor’s website www.n2n.org or by calling Caleb Anderson at 970-488-2374. The classes are free and an optional study guide may be purchased for $15. Class dates are: Saturday, Feb. 11 and Saturday March 10 at Eheart Designs, 4901 Thompson Parkway in Loveland. Classes meet from 8:30 am to 3 pm.
