“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” — Maya Angelou




Online HomeBuyer Education

Every topic includes online materials, videos and worksheets to help you learn.  Then, at the end of each topic there are a few multiple-choice questions to see how you are doing.  Don’t worry though, you can take the quizzes again if you need to make sure you’re ready to move on.

“THDA recognizes the impact Homebuyer Education has created for many homeowners across the state and we understand the value it brings. Because of this, we feel every future homeowner would benefit from receiving Homebuyer Education in order to learn the steps of the home-buying process and how to be a sustainable homeowner. THDA requires Homebuyer Education for all borrowers applying for down payment assistance and we encourage it for all future homebuyers.” – THDA
