Classes & Benefits
hoMEworks homebuyer education classes provide an opportunity to learn about the home buying process in a neutral environment. Buyers who have taken home buying classes are more confident when asking questions and making decisions about homeownership and loan products. Education gives buyers the tools they need to avoid predatory lending and possible foreclosure.
If you are thinking of buying a home, plan to attend a hoMEworks class in person at one of several convenient locations statewide, or complete your homebuyer education on line. We believe face-to-face homebuyer education is the best opportunity for an interactive learning experience and attending a local class should always be your first choice.
- Homebuyer Education - 10 Hour Local Class
hoMEworks offers a 10-hour homebuyer education class taught by industry professionals (lenders, home inspectors, real estate agents) in an educational, non-sales oriented environment statewide.
- Homebuyer Education - 8 Hour eHome America Online Course
hoMEworks also has partnered with eHomeAmerica to offer a fee-based online certification course. The course takes 8 to 10 hours, and you may stop and start at any time. Short quizzes will verify your understanding of key information.
- Landlord Education
The Landlord Education seminar, designed for those owning and managing residental properties, covers a variety of topics ranging from tenant application to eviction. MaineHousing and Fair Housing topics are included.
If your lender or mortgage assistance program requires that you attend a "HUD approved" home buyer education class, the eHome America online course may not be acceptable. Please check with your lender to find out which classes are allowed.
If you have questions, please contact hoMEworks.
