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-certified homebuying counselors, clients will work to become "mortgage-ready."

AAAH's in-person Homebuying Classes have started again. However, first-time homebuyers have the option to participate in virtual homebuying classes through eHome America and explore opportunities to homebuying resources.

Are you ready to begin your homebuying journey?
