First-Time Homebuyer Course

The Whitewater Community Development Authority offers a six-hour course to help you achieve your goal of home ownership. The course will teach you what you need to know to purchase a new home. Topics include establishing good credit, developing a household budget, deciding how much house you can afford, learning what to look for in a home, negotiating the best price, identifying needed repairs, and the loan process.


This program will give you a greater opportunity to own your own home by:

  • Giving you the information you need to make a wise purchasing decision
  • Possibly lowering the down payment requirement
  • Possibly eliminating a savings reserve
  • Possibly lowering the amount of income you need to qualify for a home loan
