City of Boston Classes

Financial Education Associates provides classes for Boston homebuyers through the Boston Home Center, City of Boston Department of Neighborhood Development.

The offerings are as follows:

Homebuying 101: How to Purchase a Home in Boston is a 10-hour class (two-five hour sessions or four 2.5-hour sessions) that educates participants on the home purchase process in Boston. Information includes special programs for financial assistance in buying and repairing a home, specialty mortgage products, the process in getting a mortgage, finding a home, and determining if the home is right is for you. We also discuss the purchase process and sustainable homeownership issues. Upon successful completion of the class, participants receive a certificate required for first time homebuyer products in Massachusetts.

Our current in-person classes are full. We are in the process of redesigning our homebuyer classes. The new schedule will be available the week of July 16.  If you need to take the class immediately, we have an online class option.
