AAAH's Pre-Purchase Counseling provides first-time homebuyers (HUD Definition: anyone who has not owned a home in the past three years) with personal one- on-one support through the homebuying process and develop steps to become successful homeowners. With the assistance of our HUD-approved homebuying counselors, clients will work to become "mortgage-ready."
Due to COVID-19, AAAH's in-person Homebuying Classes are postponed. However, first-time homebuyers can participate in virtual homebuying classes through eHome America and explore opportunities to homebuying resources.
