Pre-Purchase Homebuyers Education and Counseling

An online course in conjunction with a one-on-one individual counseling session can prepare first-time homebuyers with the skills to purchase wisely and to be aware of the responsibilities of owning homes. The certificates issued may be required by your lender or other agency to allow you to take advantage of any special programs they might offer for first-time homebuyers.

There is no fee for the one-on-one individual session. There is currently a $15 fee for the online course.  To sign up for the online course and a one-on-one session, please call our office at 815-338-5757.

We also offer a Spanish prepurchase class for $30 per household, please call our office at 815-338-5757 to schedule your session.

During the COVID-19 crisis our offices will remain open to phone appointments, but will not be seeing face-to-face clients or holding group workshops at this time. Our DMP program will continue to function as usual and creditors are continuing to require payments be made as scheduled.
