Housing Counseling

A home is more than a place to live; it’s a financial asset, a place to raise a family, and an investment in the community. Knowledge is the key, whether you’re a first time homebuyer, considering a reverse mortgage, or struggling to prevent foreclosure.

Before You Refinance Your Home Loan

Budgeting for Your First Home

Is it time to start thinking about purchasing your first home? Apartment dwelling is fine and living with the folks is a great way to save money, but for quite a few of us, owning a home is the light at the end of the living situation tunnel.

Beware the hidden costs of homeownership

Are you planning to buy a new home? If you are making the move from renter to homebuyer, you are likely to find that there are some hidden costs to ownership — costs that you probably never thought about when you were renting. Starting at your closing, additional housing expenses that you hadn’t considered might cost you money you were never expecting to spend.
