Your home is one of the largest investments you’ll ever make, so if you’re planning on buying a home within the next two years, you owe it to yourself to take advantage of Cambridge’s pre-purchase education counseling. Our certified housing counselors will explain the steps you need to follow as you prepare for homeownership. We’ll review your current budget and credit report with you to help you determine what you can afford, not what a salesperson says you can afford. We’ll also provide information on the advantages and disadvantages of the various financing options and assistance programs that may be available to you, and show you how to avoid predatory lending practices. From choosing the right home, to inspections and closing, Cambridge’s counselors are here to help you learn about the homebuying process and how to make informed financial decisions for yourself and your family.
