Welcome to Home At Last™ University!
Owning a home is life-changing – from planting roots to investing in your future, it will shape the way you live for years to come.
It’s our goal to make the process clear and straightforward by providing Nevadans with the tools they need to successfully purchase a home and remain proud homeowners. As a newly enrolled student at “HAL University,” part of the Home At Last™ Homebuyer Education program, we will walk you through the Steps to Homeownership and check for understanding along the way.
Attending a homebuyer education workshop or completing the online course is a requirement if you are participating in one of our Home At Last™ program.
Chapter One: Complete Your Homebuyer Education
As you start writing your own story of homeownership, there are a couple ways to complete the required homebuyer education course. We offer both online and in-person options, making it easy to become a “student,” based on your schedule and life.
OPTION 1: Online Homebuyer Education Course
Ready to learn more about the process of buying a home? The Home At Last™ online course discusses every step, from credit scores and budgeting to financing the purchase of your new home. Get started now by clicking a link below. We offer all of our courses in English and Spanish, too!
OPTION 2: Upcoming Home At Last™ Homebuyer 101 Courses
We know online isn’t the preferred way to learn for everyone, which is AOK! Join us at one of our in-person courses where you’ll learn about the entire homebuying process, plus have access to our team of experts who will be ready to answer your questions! You’ll also be joined by classmates who are also on their homebuying journey – it’s fun, engaging and a great way to kick off the process.
OPTION 3: HUD-Certified Courses (Preferred)
Attending a HUD-certified class or completing an online HUD-certified course is also an excellent way to prepare for successful homeownership. The courses are more comprehensive, so plan on devoting most of an entire day to take the class or complete the course – but you’ll be well on your way to becoming a successful homeowner!
Chapter Two: Prequalify for Home At Last™ with an Approved Lender
Chapter Three: Select a Real Estate Agent
Chapter Four: Shop For Your New Home
Final Chapter (But just the start for you!): Share Your Home At Last™ Success Story
