1. Your first step is to attend a free homebuyer seminar. Washington Housing Association will educate you on the process of purchasing a home in the state of Washington. No solicitation is allowed in the classroom. Your information is not sold or distributed. At the end of your class you will receive a certificate that is valid for two years and is a requirement of the House Key Schools program.
2. After the homebuyer educational course, a qualified
Home House Key Schools loan officer will coordinate your pre-approval. All your loan options will be presented at this time. How much you qualify for will be answered. E-mail us
if you have any questions regarding our recommended loan officers.
3. At this point you should either have a pre-approval or at least instructions on what you need to do in order to obtain one. The key principles that you learned in the homebuyer seminar now start to pay off! Your real estate professional and loan officer will coordinate the process of locating, financing and closing on your new home.
