First-Time Buyer Education List

First-Time Home Buyer Classes Los Angeles 2023

Many 2023 down-payment assistance programs require completion of a HUD-certified 8 hour first-time home buyer class and counseling course.  A certificate of completion is issued after the 8 hours are fulfilled and will need to be furnished prior to close of escrow.  It is best to complete the course as soon as you know you will be starting the home buying process using a first time buyer program, as classes tend to fill quickly and can postpone your completion.

 *Participating entities, class or Zoom schedules, locations, costs (if any) and HUD approval status subject to change without notice.  Please confirm all when registering, including whether or not program still has HUD approved status.*

NOTE:  Section 8 subsidized programs may or may not apply. Please check with your lender.
