What you'll learn
Getting a loan
Hear about the various loan products that may be available to you and why not all loan types—and lenders—are created equal. We’ll go over downpayment assistance programs and what you need to know about your credit. This section is taught by an experienced mortgage broker.
Getting into contract on your home
Learn about the dos and don’ts when searching for your home and making an offer. Aaron will teach you about mistakes that homebuyers often make and how to successfully navigate a competitive market to get into contract.
What happens before you get your keys
The homebuying process doesn’t end when you get into contract. Learn about what comes next, and how to make sure your real estate purchase remains on track before you receive your keys.
