Online Homebuyer Counseling
HUD-approved Online Homebuyer Counseling is the fastest way to receive your First-time Homebuyer Certification.
Is Online Counseling For Me?
If you’re already pre-approved for your mortgage with a traditional lender (bank, credit union, etc.) online counseling might be for you!
If your lender referred you to Acts Housing for Counseling in order to get your First-time Homebuyer Certification, the online option might be for you!
If you prefer to learn at your own pace, online counseling might be for you!
How It Works
Step 1: Register for Online Counseling Courses with Acts Housing through eHomeAmerica
In partnership with eHomeAmerica, we are able to offer HUD-approved Homebuyer Counseling online. The online program costs $99, which will be due when you register.
Step 2: Complete The Courses Online
Take the online courses at your own pace. Course topics include: Tenancy, Fair Housing, Affordability, Financial Management, Avoiding Foreclosure, and Post-purchase
Step 3: Receive Your First-Time Homebuyer Certificate
Once you have completed your courses online, you’ll be prompted to reach out to an Acts Housing Counselor to schedule a final 1-hour counseling session, either in-person or by phone. Once completed, you’ll be issued your First-time Homebuyer Certificate. You can pick it up at one of our offices, or we can mail it to you.
