Lift Homebuyer Education

Many people want to learn about the home buying process before they make an offer to purchase a home. There are down payment funds such as NeigborhoodLIFT and other loan programs that require homebuyers attend eight (8) hours of homebuyer education prior to the loan closing. NOTE: Homebuyer education classes DO NOT have to be completed PRIOR to attending the NeighborhoodLift event on September 28-29.  However, if you would like to get started on the process before the event, you may register now for the approved homebuyer education classes offered below 

The classes are offered in the Des Moines area by Neighborhood Finance Corporation’s local partner, HOME, Inc. The fee to attend is only $20. 


Three session options are available in October. To register, select the session you would like to attend below and enter password HomebuyerEd. There is a class limit of 20 participants per class and a minimum of 5 people must register for the class to be held.
