How HomeSage can help you on your way to home
The HomeSage Way
Purchasing a home, for many families, is likely their single most important financial and investment decision. Yet, recent history reveals that too many new homeowners are victims of bad advice regarding the purchase and loans options. Too few are aware of available education and counseling resources that could provide them objective knowledge of the home buying process.
HomeSage exists to ensure statewide access to high quality pre-purchase education and individual counseling - a huge step forward in creating an informed consumer base and stronger, more stable communities.
A Better Way to Financial Health
The education provided by HomeSage creates better candidates for loans, a higher closing rate, and fewer defaults. The New York Times reported that people who receive pre-purchase housing counseling and education through the NeighborWorks network are 1/3 less likely to fall seriously behind on their mortgages.
The NeighborWorks® Way
