Congratulations to the most recent graduates of our homeownership education class! These 15 future homeowners completed a semester of classes to prepare them for the challenges and joys of Habitat homeownership.
Each participant completed Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University to better prepare them for the financial planning involved with owning a home. Budgeting skills were refined and healthy spending habits were shared. Future homeowners also learned about homeowners insurance, taxes, appraisals, and legal issues related to owning a home.
The class completed maintenance courses to prepare them for building or rehabbing their Habitat house and taking care of it after they purchase it with a 0% interest mortgage. Habitat construction staff and community partners offered wisdom on potential challenges with plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and other areas. Homeowners were hands-on for demonstrations of painting, drywall, and hammering.
Next up: building/rehabbing their home alongside volunteers and partners, then purchasing their FIRST home!
We are seeking qualified applicants to our homeownership program and spots are still open for class this fall. Join us the first Thursday of every month for an info session to learn more or call Martha at 317.777.6086!
