AHCOPA guides you along the path of meeting the necessary qualifications to achieve homeownership for the first time. We serve as the bridge between the client and the lender, real estate agent, and home inspector by translating complex terminology into client-friendly language.
Homeownership offers the benefits of long-term wealth and social stability. Through housing counseling, clients will examine and improve their consumer habits, what their values and priorities are and how to become a responsible homeowner.
- Credit Counseling and Education
- Asset Building Strategies
- Referral to lenders with favorable loan terms for first-time buyers
- Access to grant programs that will ease the up-front costs for homeownership
