Homebuyer Education

Looking to buy a home?

Whether this is your first home, or it’s been a while since you bought, you may have questions about the financing process. Our residential lending experts offer no-cost homebuyer education events in our communities and virtual/online. We invite you to review the various courses we offer and hope to see you soon.

  • Mortgage Ready Events
  • Lot and Construction Ready Events
  • Housing Commission (WSHFC) 5-Hour Course with Certificate of Completion
Learn about becoming mortgage ready
Our residential lending experts host homebuying workshops meant to prepare you to buy your first home. These sessions are generally 1-2 hours, and cover homebuyer topics such as understanding credit, how much you can afford and budgeting for a down payment. Mortgage Ready workshops are offered virtually and at locations in markets we serve.
From lot loans to building your dream home
Ready to build instead of buy? Our lot and construction loans can help you finance the perfect spot, then build your dream home. We also offer financing for new manufactured and modular homes, and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). Home construction financing is typically more complex. If you are wondering where to start, our construction ready workshops are a great place to get your questions answered.
