Congratulations! You are considering becoming a homeowner.
Before looking at property listings or reaching out to a Realtor or a lender, Take Root Milwaukee recommends that you begin with homebuyer education provided by a HUD-approved housing counseling agency. Homeownership specialists provide free and/or low-cost, reliable and confidential assistance that will help you determine your readiness and make sure you start the path to homeownership on the right foot.
Visit our BUY pages to find out about the benefits of completing 8-hours of home-buyer education, discover grants and other incentives organizations have to assist with down-payments, see what types of loans are available through member lenders, as well as how to look for and work with a Realtor.
Watch our Home Buying: Process & Resources workshop to hear from a
certified Housing Counselor, a Mortgage Lender, a Licensed Realtor, and the City of Milwaukee Department of City Development.
