In partnership with Kasson Mantorville Community Education, the Southeastern Minnesota Multi-County Housing and Redevelopment Authority (SEMMCHRA) will be hosting an in-person Home Stretch class on Saturday, April 22nd from 8:00 AM to 5 PM in Kasson. The class will be held at the Kasson Mantorville High School. Pre-registration is required, and the cost of class is $6. Participants can register by visiting https://www.semmchra.org/home-ownership/homebuyer-education-classes/ and clicking on the April 22nd class.
Home Stretch offers participants the opportunity to learn about the homebuying process from start to finish. The class covers budgeting, credit, securing a mortgage, making an offer, loan closing, and more. Participants will also be able to ask questions during the presentation as they learn about the homebuying process.
Many first-time homebuyer loan programs and down payment assistance programs require applicants to take homebuyer education. Participants who complete the one-day class will earn a completion certificate.
Whether you are trying to buy a home or just want to better understand the process, SEMMCHRA’s Home Stretch class can help!
