Homebuyer Services is a regional program providing services for home buyers in all counties in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area including both Illinois and Missouri. It is designed to prepare homebuyers to make good decisions during the home buying process with confidence, understand the responsibilities that go along with homeownership and connect to affordable loan products and down payment and closing cost assistance. The services are offered in two tracks. The Housing Partnership adheres to National Industry Standards for homebuyer training and counseling.
The Ready Now track is for individuals and families that have a contract on a home and are pre-approved for a loan and want to meet the requirement of completing Homebuyer Training and Counseling. The training is offered in person (if your schedule permits) and on-line. In order to complete the counseling component, a completed intake packet with the requested documents must be sent to the program staff and a one-on-one meeting will be scheduled. Once the training and counseling have been completed, a certificate will be issued to you and a copy will be sent to your loan officer. If your lender does not require a on-on-one meeting, exceptions can be made if the loan officer contacts us. Get the Get Ready Intake packet HERE
No fees are paid until class is attended. Online training costs $115.00 (paid online) and can be accessed through www.eHomeAmerica.org/housingpartnershipstl
Please submit all information per the instructions in the packet and you will be contacted to set up an appointment for the one-on-one meeting. If you are requesting down payment and closing cost assistance, please click on that tab under Services for the application – no need to download the intake packet.
