Are you considering purchasing your first home, but feeling overwhelmed by the process? Don’t go it alone.

SCC offers a comprehensive education program for First-Time Homebuyers. Classes feature presentations from area realtors, lenders, home inspectors, lawyers and insurance agents – all the professionals a homebuyer will encounter in their journey to purchasing their first property.

While gaining insight from those who know the industry and the competitive market best, participants also learn about affordable mortgage opportunities geared specifically toward first-time homebuyers.

Upon completion, you’ll receive a letter that enables you to access products geared specifically towards first-time homebuyers such as the ONE and MassHousing loans. The classes are taught in English. Pre-registration is required, and the registration fee is $65 per person or $90 for two. Participants must attend all sessions in order to receive the certificate.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
