Home Buyer Education and Landlord Education

Get educated! Learn about the buying process, financing options, and being a responsible homeowner. WHEDA wants you to be ready for homeownership. Understanding the complicated world of mortgages can be confusing.

  • First-time Home Buyers are required to take a home buyer education class.
  • In addition, if purchasing a 2-4-unit property, at least one borrower must also complete an approved landlord education course. 
  • Check with your lender on which type of education you will need.
  • Both Home Buyer Education and Landlord Education must have been completed prior to purchase and are good for within 12 months of the application date.

There are several in-person and online options and both are acceptable
