June is National Homeownership Month, and education is the best way to prepare to buy a home. Idaho Housing and Finance Association is celebrating Homeownership Month by offering free in-person Finally Home! Homebuyer Education classes throughout the state.
Buying a home is one of the most significant purchases most people will ever make. For first-time homebuyers, the process can be especially intimidating, confusing, or just plain scary. It doesn’t have to be that way. Finally Home! homebuyer education helps future homeowners understand budgeting, credit, loan types, closing costs and home maintenance.

In Bonner County, a class will be held Saturday, 9 am.-3 p.m., at Bonner Community Housing Agency, 120 S. Second Ave., Unit B, Sandpoint.
“The Finally Home! Homebuyer Education course gives borrowers insight into how the homebuying process actually works. It provides them with the tools and knowledge they need to become successful homeowners,” said Heather Bowman, Idaho Housing’s national homebuyer education manager. “The class answers questions and provides facts borrowers can use in working with their lender and Realtor to make smart decisions during the home-buying process.”
Students can take the class in English or Spanish online at finallyhomecourse.com for a $50 fee. More than 70,000 people have graduated and used the Finally Home! course in their homebuying process.
