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.
