Homebuyer Education

If you are considering purchasing a home, one of your first steps should be to educate yourself about the process. Knowing your credit score, figuring out how much house you can afford and understanding the terminology can help make it easier to purchase a home. This section of the website will give you an overview of some of the important information you need. Penn Home Ownership services staff is also available to provide resources and information throughout the process.

You can also take advantage of the Annual Educational Series each fall and a Spring Housing Fair every May. More information on these events is provided in the "About PHOS" section of this website.
