First-Time Home Buyer Workshop

Do you dream of owning a home, but are not sure where to start?

Due to El Paso County’s Level Red COVID response, in-person workshops are cancelled for the month of December 2020.  Please check the website in January for the 2021 schedule.

During this 6-hour, CHFA-approved workshop you will learn:

  • the importance of budgeting
  • the mortgage loan process
  • the home buying process
  • finding the right home
  • identifying predatory lending
  • the impact of credit
  • responsibilities of ownership

Upon completion of the class you will earn a certificate that allows you to take advantage of special loan products, and is a requirement for any of CHFA’s affordable loan products.  Certificates are emailed to participants during the next business day after completion of the class.

RMCLT is the only HUD-approved Housing Counseling agency in El Paso County.  This workshop is free, and open to anyone whether you are ready to buy now or need more time.  You do not need to be a first-time homebuyer.

We will be meeting at the Bentley Commons Clubhouse.  The address is 2715 Bentley Point, Colorado Springs, CO 80910 (near S. Academy Blvd & Hancock Expy).  No children, please.

Space is limited, and workshops fill up weeks in advance.  Registration is on a first come, first served basis.  Clients who register for one workshop, and fail to attend without notice, are not guaranteed registration for the next workshop.

The workshop is limited to 9 participants; when all 9 seats are reserved, you can still be added to the waitlist.  If anyone cancels their reservation, the first name from the waitlist will get the open seat.

RMCLT is pleased to offer fair and easy access to all programs and services.  If you are in need of an accommodation due to a special need, disability, learning barrier, or language barrier please contact us at least two weeks prior to the workshop.
