Home Buying Guide

You Too, Can Be A Homeowner!

For many, home ownership is the basis of the American Dream. Home ownership continues to be one of the best ways to build wealth. It plays a vital role in building strong, stable communities. And, it helps to build local economies.

In times past, home ownership opportunities have been intentionally and strategically withheld from African Americans, Latino Americans and other non-White people. This home buying guide seeks to intentionally break the barrier and bring all within our community into the home-buying realm.

This is a home buying guide that includes step-by-step information for purchasing a home, financial education and resources for those encountering discrimination. All of the answers to your questions may not be within the guide. This is a tool to help those seeking to purchase a home in their quest to achieve the American dream!
