Housing Counseling FAQ

A

Yes. Group education provides information that is not specific to each client's situation but cannot replace covering the topic during the individual Housing Counseling session. Housing Counseling addresses the unique circumstances of the client relating to these topics. For example, group education may discuss the difference between a home inspection and an appraisal. The housing counselor can further discuss with a client during the one-on-one session options for paying the cost of a home inspection, and what will be covered in the inspection based on the type of property the client is interested in purchasing. The counselor can also ask the client if s/he has any additional questions concerning the home inspection materials provided during the education class.
