Online First-Time Home Buyer Course
(Hybrid Course-Online Modules plus 1 face to face meeting required)


If you are in process of obtaining a loan to purchase your first home, and you are unable to participate in one of our in-person First Time Home Buyer classes, CSN offers an online hybrid version of the First Time Homebuyer Course. (The online portion does not work well on a smart phone or tablet as it is too large and takes too long to buffer causing the program to crash and not work.  Needs to be completed on a desk top or laptop computer.)  This is an approved Masshousing and a Citizens’ Housing And Planning Association (CHAPA) course.

This class consists of 6 modules (319 slides,) each with its own quiz and a final assessment that must be passed with a score of 80% or above. Once finished with all six modules and the assessment, participants must participate in an exit interview (plan for up to 3 hours) with one of CSN's First-Time Home Buyer Counselors (typically face to face appointments consist of one household but it may be necessary due to volume of need to have 2 or 3 households participating in the face to face appointments together) at the CSN's offices.  (CSN's office hours are Monday through Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm)  It can take up to a week or two from when you complete the online component to complete the face to face component please plan accordingly.


This course costs $100 per person or per couple/household (2 adults) registering together.
