Getting Started

by: Mari Takeshita

Many organizations offer home loan counseling to prospective homebuyers. ( We can send you information)

They will cover home selection, Realtor services, lenders, loan programs, homeownership responsibilities, saving fora down-payment,

and other important pieces of information.


By going thru one of the many classes that are available in the Metro Denver area, you will have all the correct facts that pertain to

Purchasing the home of your dreams.


There are several classes around town. And you can also take a class on line thru  The certificate that you receive thru these

Programs will also be necessary if you are going to be using a down payment assistance program. Make sure the class you attend is the one needed by your

Down payment assistance program!

The classes range from FREE to $50.oo, depending on which program you choose or are required to take for the assistance program you will be utilizing.


The classes will give you the A-Z of purchasing a home and will also help if you do not have a lender or Realtor.


Many Realtors like myself will also do FREE Home Purchase counseling.  Just ask your Realtor if they provide that service.  Its best to work with an

Agent that knows the ins and outs of a transaction and the different programs that are available in your local area.


Just ask a Realtor and you should be given a lot of information and lenders that you can prequalify for your home loan along with a down payment assistance program.
