Homebuyer Counseling

Dream of owning your own home but don't know where to start? Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County's (CAP-HC's) homeownership counseling can help!

HUD*-certified Housing Counselors work with clients to determine homebuyer readiness by reviewing finances, checking your credit report, and creating a budget. Then counselors help clients develop an action plan to achieve their homeownership goals. Whether you are thinking about purchasing a home some day or have already found your dream home, our Housing Counselors are available to answer your questions.

A counselor can help you with the following mortgage readiness steps:

  • Review your finances
  • Review credit (FREE credit report)
  • Make a credit improvement plan if needed
  • Explain the mortgage process
  • Determine the amount of mortgage you may be eligible for
  • Identify mortgage loans and down payment assistance programs you may be eligible for.
