Homebuyer Workshops

Not sure if you are ready for homeownership? Need help to be ready? Home Stretch Workshops can help you determine readiness, make a plan to get there, and prepare for homeownership.

Home Stretch Workshops were developed by Minnesota Homeownership Center to be used in connection with homebuyer education services. These workshops explore the following topics, and more:

  • The cost of renting versus owning
  • Overcoming credit debt, income, or savings barriers
  • Mortgage application process
  • How to shop for a home
  • The closing process
