The Introduction to Homeownership Class is a 6-hour fun and interactive class educating prospective homeowners on the homeownership process.

About this event

The Introduction to Homeownership Class is a 6-hour fun and interactive class covering topics on:

  • How to prepare for homeownership and shop for a home
  • The advantages of homeownership and low-cost ways to get into homeownership
  • What to expect during the mortgage process

This class is a 2-part class. The first part is on Tuesday, July 20 from 6pm to 9pm and the second part is on Wednesday, July 21 from 6pm to 9pm. Both parts are required to receive the certificate.

It is required that you and anyone else on the future loan attend the full 6-hour class, which entitles you to a MSHDA, HUD, or other program certification, that is valid for one year. Certificates will be granted directly to you to pass onto a lender or program staff. We will keep records of your attendance as verification.

In addition to the registration via Eventbrite, the following packet must be filled out: Intro Class Intake Packet

PLEASE NOTE: ALL classes will be held via a live Zoom webinar.


  • $20 for the first registrant, $5 for additional registrants in the same household. The $5 fee is not for friends, only additional members of a household; Friends must pay $20 as another independent registrant.
  • The class closes 48 hours before the first session and/or when at capacity. No day-of registrations; class participants must be registered for the class.
