*Please note: due to high demand, Homebuyer Coaching sessions are currently being scheduled about 1 month out; we thank you for your patience while we hire more Coaches!
How It Works
Step 1: Attend an Acts orientation
Acts Virtual Homebuyer Orientation is the first step in the process. At orientation, you will learn much more about how the program works, timelines, etc. You will also have the chance to pay for your credit report ($28.55 for a single person; $57.10 for a married couple). Paying for your credit report is your official “enrollment” in the program.
Step 2: Attend your first coaching session with your Homebuyer Coach
Your first session with your Homebuyer Coach will consist of a full assessment of your finances. To do this, you will need to upload or bring documents listed on Acts’ Document Checklist for discussion with your coach. From there, your coach will assess your readiness to purchase, and if needed, develop and work with you on a Financial Action Plan.
Step 3: Move on to Real Estate
Once you have completed your work with your Homebuyer Coach, you will receive your certificate of completion and can move on to the real estate department to find your home.

If you’re already pre-approved and your lender referred you to Acts for Homebuyer Coaching, online education is an option! This is the fastest path to get your First-time Homebuyer Certification.
To all Acts homebuyers and families: we urge you to take caution when sharing your personal information. There are many home-buying scams out there! An Acts Housing team member will never ask you to send in money prior to completing our homebuyer program (with the exception of paying for your credit report). If you receive a text, call, or email stating that you’ve been pre-approved for a loan, or that you need to make a down-payment prior to completing Acts’ program, please do not send money or documents!
Your Acts Housing team will have firstname.lastname@example.org email addresses. If you’re ever uncertain about a request, please verify that it’s coming from an Acts team member by calling our main office at 414-933-2215.
