Introduction to Homeownership

Introduction to Homeownership: Live Zoom Webinar

Buying a home is a big deal! ICCF 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 teaches the class through a live Zoom webinar once a month. Click here for the class flyer. 

This course covers topics on:

  • Homeownership readiness
  • Credit and budgeting
  • Choosing the right home
  • Fair housing
  • Purchase and closing processes
  • And more!

Online classes are available in English and Spanish.

Unable to attend the live Zoom webinar? ICCF offers a self paced Introduction to Homeownership Class through Framework that can be completed on your own schedule.
