First Time Home Buyer Education

The Community Housing Council offers
HUD approved home buyer education two ways!
You can choose to attend a live 8 hour class
held in our Fresno classroom or you can choose
to take an online course.
Either class requires that you first meet
with a HUD housing counselor to
determine your mortgage readiness.

Below are the prices for both types of education
Pre and post-course counseling appointment...........$24
Individual attending live class...................$90
Couple buying together live class............$150
Individual or couple online.......................$99

(The online course is $75 plus $24)

If you register anywhere else for Frameworks online, we cannot provide you with the HUD certificate.

The online class can be taken at your leisure but it does require you to take the online course and receive a passing grade. The cost for that portion of the course is $75 and is paid directly to Frameworks when you register through this website. Please note that once you pass the online course you will be instructed to call our office (559-221-6919) and let us know that you are a Frameworks student. In order for us to issue you a HUD certificate, you will then need to schedule a one-on-one counseling session (approximately one hour) with one of our counselors. There is an additional cost of $24 for this session and can be paid when you call to schedule your session. This session can be done either in person or over the phone. Upon completion of the counseling session, you will be issued a certificate indicating that you have taken a HUD approved course. It may take you several days to be scheduled for the counseling session, so please consider the time it may take you when registering for the online course. The length of time needed to take the online portion of the course will depend on you! It can be done in a day for some but might take others longer. Remember there is a test that you will need to pass before you can schedule your counseling session!

If you are unsure of which method to use or would just like some additional information, please give us a call! 559-221-6919
