OSU Extension, Franklin County offers a free comprehensive home buyer education workshop series to help prospective home buyers in achieving their dream of owning a home. The series will be held Feb. 2, 9, 16, and 23 from 6-8 p.m. at Grove City City Hall in the lower level conference room (4035 Broadway, Grove City, Ohio). Our program is one of only a handful in Central Ohio that is certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and approved by the City of Columbus. Those who attend the four sessions and participate in a one-on-one budget counseling session will receive a HUD-certified Certificate of Completion, which often is required to apply for many down payment/closing cost assistance programs and/or grants. Participants in this workshop series will:
- Learn the basics of budgeting, credit, mortgage loans, and the home buying process
- Network with professionals such as lenders, realtors, insurance agents, and home inspectors
- Get information about financing options, including grants, loans, and cost assistance programs
