As clients approach the mortgage-ready stage of the pre-purchase process, housing counselors should be able to discuss financing options, including various government loans. While most counselors include FHA mortgage products in the conversation, they should have an understanding of all government loans to help weigh options that most benefit the clients’ financial goals. In this course, participants will explore the benefits of securing an FHA loan product, review eligibility criteria for VA and Rural Housing Service special loan programs, and learn how to examine government vs. conventional products with clients. In addition, tips and techniques will be shared regarding how to increase your mortgage-ready pipeline of clients with the help of government financing.
