Introduction to Homeownership

Introduction to Homeownership: Self-Paced Class

Buying a home is a big deal! ICCF Community Homes works with individuals and families to determine whether or not homeownership is an appropriate next step for them. In an effort to provide accessible education to households, ICCF Community Homes has partnered with Framework to virtually provide first-time homeownership education. With Framework, you’ll navigate every step of the process with confidence.

This course covers topics on:

  • Homeownership readiness
  • Credit and budgeting
  • Choosing the right home
  • Fair housing
