Buying a home is a big step, let us help you prepare. Our Home Ownership Programs help our residents be informed about the home-buying process from start to finish. We offer classes on credit building, budgeting, home-buying and taking care of your home post-purchase. If you have ever thought about buying a home, but just didn’t know where to start, we can give you the assistance you need while you are living in one of our many housing options.
Home Buyer Education
“Everyone included in this process was AMAZING! We had so many hardships with the bank but HPI staff helped me through it all!”
-Malori Taylor, graduate of HPI’s Homeownership Classes.
Our Home Buyer Education Program is designed to help you gain the tools you need to be a successful homeowner. Our program is flexible and can be tailored to your specific needs. You will also be paired up with an individual Housing Counselor to help answer any questions you many have. We provide classes for our residents and qualified Norton employees through the Employer Assisted Housing Program. Classes are held at our Community Resource center or online. Contact us to learn more.
Some of the topics our classes will cover include:
- Credit building
- Setting financial goals
