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 the Home At Last™ Homebuyer 101 Course, and HUD-Certified Courses.
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: 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

This course provides new homeowners with the information and resources they need to help keep their home and finances in great condition and includes everything from budgeting information to maintenance tips. If you’ve closed on your home using one of the Home At Last™ programs, and you complete this course within 60 days after purchasing your home, you will receive a gift card as our way of saying thanks for taking this important step to becoming a responsible homeowner.
