Homebuyer education programs help build better borrowers by preparing them for the home-buying process.
Some loan programs require homebuyer education. If you are a borrower, consult with your lender to make sure you fulfill your homebuyer education requirements with an approved program. Lenders, make sure you understand your investors' homebuyer education requirements.

We hope Readynest’s more accessible format, along with expanded content and tools, will help more homebuyers find, afford and love homes of their own.
