A Home is More than a monthly payment
More space. Fewer restrictions. No landlord. And you can paint the walls whatever color you like!
There are a ton of reasons to want to buy a home. It's long been considered part of the "American Dream" because of the personal freedom it represents. For many, homeownership is a form of investment, allowing you to build equity in the roof over your head. But there's a big difference between renting an apartment and buying a home, and successful homeownership is about much more than just managing a monthly mortgage payment.
Prepared for anything
MMI offers a variety of homebuyer counseling options. Many of these counseling offerings are geared toward consumers closing on specific loan types who are required to complete counseling as part of the closing process. However, we also offer FREE homebuyer counseling to anyone looking to purchase a home and interested in understanding more about the home buying process. This counseling includes a complete review of your current finances, including your potential ability to support a mortgage, as well as an overview of the costs and considerations that come with owning a home.
We also offer online homebuyer courses, which are a great way to prepare yourself for homeownership at your own pace. These courses can be used to fulfill education requirements for many specialized homebuyer programs (check with your lender to verify program eligibility).
