Welcome to the New Home, Now What? workshop overview! In this module, we will review the agenda and learning objectives for this course. We will also highlight some of the services Homewise offers to homeowners like you.
Maintaining Your Home
This module is all about learning the tools and resources needed to maintain your home. From repairs and maintenance to insurance and hiring a contractor, we discuss how to keep your home in tip-top shape.
Your New Financial World
Financial aspects of homeownership don’t end once you get the keys to your home. In this module, we review your monthly mortgage payment and annual escrow statement. We talk about the importance of budgeting and the role that credit plays now that you’re a homeowner. We help you determine if refinancing is right for you and look at ways to finance those home improvements you might be dreaming of.
Helping Your Community Thrive & Wrap-up
Homewise believes that thriving communities come from thriving homeowners. This module is about how we can make being a part of a community a positive experience for ourselves and our neighbors. Learn how to build a sense of community with your neighbors and contribute through simple acts like being neighborly and voting in local elections.
