The buyer education course covers a variety of topics pertaining to the home buying process. Some of the subjects include: three quick steps for building mortgage-ready credit, an insider’s guide to qualifying for the best rates and terms on a home or multi-unit loan, how to shop for a home like a pro (and get your offer accepted), how to beat out cash buyers, and more. Plus, you’ll get a personalized action plan, giving you step-by-step guidance to help you on your journey.

Progress

HPP CARES CDE's accomplishments these past few years have been significant and all-encompassing; striving to advocate under the National Coalition for Equities’ umbrella to maintain a powerful community voice among the Federal and State regulators and major private sector corporations to address public policy issues, and to focus on the wealth & income inequality affecting affordable homeownership and small business growth. With the NCFE, HPP CARES CDE’s outreach efforts have led to an increase in corporate social responsibility and consumer protection. We have been able to reach more people, collaborate with more companies, meet with more regulators, all in the name of helping deserving individuals become sustainable homebuyers, successful small business owners, protected consumers and empowering California communities. HPP CARES CDE is at the forefront of helping people of color become partners in our mission to reduce income and wealth inequality and build stronger futures for all minority groups.
