Purchase Ready Workshop

Get started on the path to home ownership by attending Downstreet’s Purchase Ready Workshop. Our day-long HUD-approved workshop is designed to take you step-by-step through the home-buying process and help you determine if home ownership is right for you. The agenda topics include budget and credit information, mortgage options, purchase and sale contracts, home inspection, home maintenance and safety tips. For those who are unable to attend in person, talk to us about taking an online class instead.

If you’ve already met with a Downstreet Housing Specialist and have been given the “green light” to attend our Purchase Ready Class, you’re in the right place! If not, please schedule an initial on-on-one consultation before going any further!
