Harborlight Community Partners is working to create pathways to housing by assisting first time homebuyers with entry into the real estate market and achieve home ownership.
In partnership with the North Shore Association of Realtors (NSAR), Harborlight Community Partners offers a MassHousing approved, First Time Homebuyer Course with a strong curriculum developed by NSAR to provide participants a thorough understanding of the home purchasing process. The course is presented by industry experts including, REALTORS®, mortgage lenders, home inspectors, insurance agents, lawyers, credit counselors, and representatives from state agencies as well as an experienced Homebuyer Counselor for pre-and post- purchase counseling.
Graduates of the course are given a certificate that allows access to MassHousing Partnership’s ONE Mortgage, MassHousing mortgages, HUD mortgages, home ownership lotteries, lender first-time homebuyer mortgages, and a variety of other mortgages through assisted and conventional lending sources. The certificate is accepted statewide for first-time homebuyer education.
Please note that class participants are under no obligation to use the homebuyer counselors or any guest speakers for their services.
Course dates for 2020 will be determined at a later date, due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.
