Welcome to Framework® — education for serious, committed homebuyers
We’ve all heard the old adage, success is 90% preparation and 10% perspiration. It rings true when it comes to owning a home.Regardless of whether you’re a first-timer or you’ve been around the block a few times, getting educated about the major step you’re about to take is a must — especially in light of recent regulatory changes protecting consumers. The more information you have, the more likely you are to be successful.That’s why we partnered with Framework, so we could provide qualified homebuyers direct access to high-quality, online home-buying education.
Everything you need to knowFramework’s homebuyer course exceeds both HUD standards and National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling. Yet it’s so user-friendly, most people complete it in just 4 to 6 hours.
Just a small investment for your futureFramework charges a one-time $75 fee, payable during the easy online registration process. That fairly small investment is less than many homebuyers spend for their cell phone each month. And the benefits of being prepared for homeownership — or of completing a requirement for a competitive HomeReady™ mortgage — far outweigh the one-time fee.
