Many loan programs available to home buyers don’t require a home buyer education class to be taken. However, there are a couple of low down payment and down payment assistance programs that do require a short home buyer education class be taken. If you do a search on the internet for class providers be prepared for mass confusion! The issue is that different loan programs and states have different requirements and you have to make sure you take the right class or it wont be accepted.
For the most part, at least in Michigan, the HUD Approved Counseling Agencies will typically meet those requirements. If you are looking for a face to face class here in Southwest Michigan, we work a lot with Kalamazoo Neighborhood Housing Services or KNHS and they have home buyer course options both in person and online. If you are looking to take the course online Fannie Mae offers a free online course.
The MSHDA down payment assistance programs are the most common loan programs that require a home buyer class. However, the following programs all require home buyer education.
Most home buyers prefer to take the home buyer course online. Fannie Mae offers a free online class that is quick and easy.
