House on a Stack of Books

Buying a home is a very complicated process. There are many things you will have to do before you can move into your dream home. While your REALTOR® will help you will many of these steps, you may need or want to attend homebuyer counseling first. Many loans, especially those providing down payment assistance, require that the borrower complete homebuyer education. Be sure to check with your loan officer to see if you need to complete a course. If you are a first-time homebuyer, homebuyer education is recommended.

Each agency has been approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) and/or the City of Memphis.
