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. This home buyer education series will be held on November 6, 13, 20, and 27 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the OSU Extension, Franklin County Office (530 W. Spring St., Suite 275, Columbus, Ohio, 43215). Our program is one of only a handful in Central Ohio that is U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-certified and City of Columbus-approved. Those who attend both 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
