Pre- & Post-Purchase Counseling

Are you ready to buy a home? YCCAC Housing Counselors are here to assist you with the process and take you through each step. Our Pre-Purchase Counseling Program is designed with the first-time homebuyer in mind, however, you do not need to be a first-time homebuyer to participate.

You may meet one-on-one with a HUD-Certified Housing Counselor to explore your options to assure you are able to move forward through the home- buying process with knowledge and ease.

Housing Counselors will work with you to:

  • Determine what mortgage loan option will best meet your needs
  • Identify barriers to homeownership you may face and present solutions to mitigate or remove those barriers
  • Review your credit report and identify steps to help you improve your score if needed
  • Help you develop a spending and savings plan that will enable you to purchase and maintain a home
  • Inform you about predatory lending practices and help you avoid scam

Every year, our programs help nearly over 150 low-income families purchase a home.
