Homebuyer Education

Homebuyer education, sometimes called housing or pre-purchase counseling, helps homebuyers prepare for the journey of purchasing a home and the many new challenges of being a homeowner.  Homebuyer education is any class approved by HUD, Fannie Mae, or Freddie Mac.

For some Maryland Mortgage Program loans, completing homebuyer education or counseling is a requirement. Talk to one of our state-approved mortgage lenders to make sure you understand how homebuyer education fits into your financing situation.

  • ​If you are receiving funds from another source, you may have to meet certain requirements established by that funding source.
  • For homebuyers purchasing in Baltimore City or Baltimore County, homebuyer education should be completed prior to signing a contract.
