• Washington State Housing Finance Commission's “First Time Homebuyers Class”
The WSHFC First Time Homebuyers Class is free and open to anyone regardless of whether or not you plan to participate in any of the HCT programs. The certificate obtained from attending this class is accepted by all affordable housing loan programs as meeting or exceeding educational requirements.
The Homeownership Center of Tacoma offers this class at our office on the third Saturday of each month from 9:00am to 3:00pm. The class covers all major aspects of the home buying process presented in an open, unbiased format using approved training materials and handouts. HCT's certified instructors have completed the House Key and Homebuyer Education Instructor training program. No direct marketing or sales presentations are given either by the instructor or any guest speakers. Pre-registration for this class is required. Please call 253-627-6560 and speak with Tina to secure your reservation.
If you will be using one of the HCT programs to purchase your home, you must complete this class before you will be allowed to close on your home.
Because of the technical nature of the classes and in consideration of other attendees, no children under the age of 10 are permitted at either the Orientation Class or the First Time Homebuyers Class.
* If this date falls on a holiday the class will be held on the next regularly scheduled Monday evening.
