Did you know that July is homeownership education month? The summer season means that the fall home buying season is actually already underway! If you are considering upsizing, downsizing, or thinking of moving for school or a new job, it may be valuable to have a pre-purchase housing counseling session.

As the housing market continues to heat up this summer across the country, many people are looking to buy a new home, whether they are upgrading, downsizing or somewhere in between. Join us in July as we look at mortgage specifics, loan types and other expenses associated with buying a house.

If you’re wondering how much you can really afford? Concerned with finding the right home, shopping for your loan or looking for a general overview of the closing process, contact GreenPath to speak with a housing counselor.

GreenPath and the Homeownership Preservation Foundation work together to help you take a closer look at the fundamentals of financing a home, including applying for the loan, loan types and terms, and mortgage specifics.  We’ll also talk about what to expect at the closing, what to bring, who will be there, causes of delay, and some helpful tips as you move into and care for your new home.
