HOMEBUYER EDUCATION

Doing anything for the first time can be daunting. Don’t let buying your first home overwhelm you. Check out our Steps to Buying a Home and register for a Homebuyer Education class, available in-person and online, in English and Spanish.

RIHousing customers who are first-time homebuyers are required to take a Homebuyer Education class prior to closing.

IN-PERSON CLASSES

All in-person Homebuyer Education classes are suspended through October 31, 2020.

RIHousing is expanding online course options to include the Framework course offered by Fannie Mae. The course features the same basic principles taught at the in-person class. 

The class is available free of charge and the Certificate earned upon successful completion satisfies the RIHousing homebuyer education requirement. 

ONLINE

Not able to attend an in-person class? We’ve got you covered. Online classes feature the same basic principles taught at the in-person class and allow you to complete the material at your own pace.

FEDERAL HOUSING ADMINISTRATION 203(k) HOMEBUYER EDUCATION

Buyers who apply for our Renovation Mortgage/203(k) loan are required to complete this course. Others are welcome to take the course which covers important information if purchasing a home needing repairs.

*Please note that the completion of RIHousing’s Homebuyer Education class may not satisfy the Homebuyer Education requirements for other lenders or agencies providing down payment and/or closing cost assistance.
