Keys To Homeownership

Paving The Way Forward

NFCC-certified credit counselors can help you understand the process of purchasing a home. No two home-buying journeys look exactly the same, and the path is rarely a straight line. The whole process can be simplified if you break it down–understanding how to create a household budget that may better position you to qualify for a mortgage. Connect with an NFCC, nonprofit credit counselor to get started.

Buying a home is a huge decision.

A home is a place for you and your family to rest and grow, but it’s also an important investment. There are several steps you can take to prepare for buying a home—and help ensure you qualify for a mortgage when you find a home you’d like to purchase.

An NFCC-certified credit counselor can help.

A nonprofit credit counselor can help you:

  • Create a personalized plan for reducing debt
  • Maintain a credit score that will enable you to borrow
  • Build a plan to afford your new home longterm
  • Understand if you qualify for a Down Payment Assistance program

What if you don’t qualify for a mortgage?

Being turned down for a mortgage is not the end of the world! In fact, it can be an opportunity to learn how to address the reasons why.

Many people do not qualify for a mortgage initially because they have too much credit card or other unsecured debt. This is the ideal time to contact a nonprofit, NFCC-certified credit counselor.
