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. Our Lease-Purchase Home Ownership Program helps residents be informed about the home-buying process from start to finish.
Not sure if you want to buy a house right now? Would you rather live in a house before you decide to buy? HPI offers options in a variety of neighborhoods to lease a quality, newly renovated single-family home while working towards homeownership readiness. Free to our residents, HPI’s Home Buyer Education & Financial Counseling offers classes on credit building, budgeting, home-buying, and taking care of your home post-purchase. Additionally, each resident works with our HUD Certified Financial Counselors one-on-one to help you build your credit.
