Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) has launched an exciting consumer outreach initiative that prospective homebuyers can utilize as they pursue homeownership in West Milwaukee. The newly re-designed Consumer Pages are available for anyone who wants to learn about obtaining a WHEDA loan, WHEDA down payment assistance, or WHEDA mortgage credit certificates. On these pages, you can find:
- The Six Steps to Homeownership explains everything from getting a free copy of your credit report and understanding it, budgeting, how to determine a compatible WHEDA Lender, how to determine the type of house to shop for, and the mortgage process from application to closing.
- WHEDA’s First Mortgage and Down Payment Assistance programs.
- Helpful Tools and Resources helps consumers understand the responsibilities that come with homeownership after closing so they are fully prepared.
- Homebuyer Education and Landlord Education Providers directs consumers to professionals in all areas of Wisconsin who can assist them with everything from credit repair, steps to take to become eligible for homeownership, and even a link to free homebuyer education through Framework Homeownership – a national homebuyer education provider who is normally fee-based.
