First-time Homebuyer Classes

A Home of Your Own is a first-time homebuyer class open to all individuals interested in buying a home. If you are seeking to apply for the Osceola County S.H.I.P. Downpayment Assistance program or Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), this class is a pre-requisite to qualifying for assistance. All applicants, co-signers and spouses will need to receive a class certificate. 

Please Note: This class does not guarantee that you will be eligible to receive funds towards purchasing a home, but rather helps you meet one of the requirements to apply for NSP.

ONLINE registrations only. We accept debit or credit card through Eventbrite - no cash or checks accepted.
