We offer online homebuyer and landlord education to help you build better borrowers while you build relationships with them. We provide homebuyer education at no charge to you or your customers.
Please note: While our certificate meets requirements for Freddie Mac's Home Possible® program, it is not HUD-approved and does not fulfill requirements for Fannie Mae's HomeReady® or HFA Preferred programs. If your HFA Preferred loan requires homebuyer education, check with your Housing Finance Agency for guidance.

PLEASE NOTE: Our homebuyer program meets requirements for Freddie Mac's Home Possible program, it is not HUD-approved and does not fulfill requirements for Fannie Mae HomeReady or HFA Preferred loans. Our landlord program also fulfills Freddie Mac’s education requirements. Fannie Mae does not require landlord education on 2- to 4-unit HomeReady loans.
STEP 3: Direct customers to readynest.com/test, where they’ll find instructions on how to use Readynest to study for MGIC’s Homebuyer Education Test. Readynest breaks the homebuying process down into easy-to-digest pieces, from the importance of credit to closing your loan to being a successful homeowner. Spanish speakers can click “En Español” to study for and take the test in Spanish.
When your customers are ready to take the test, they register using your Homebuyer Education code. After they complete the test, you and your borrowers will receive an email notification from firstname.lastname@example.org with the borrower's contact information and their Certificate of Achievement. REMINDER: Both our homebuyer and landlord certificates meet requirements for Freddie Mac’s Home Possible program.
