Post Purchase Education & Counseling

Homeownership brings both rewards and responsibilities to new homeowners. To help you manage and understand these new responsibilities, VCCDC's Homeownership Specialists provide additional support through our workshops and one-on-one coaching for our clients who are existing homeowners. This type of education is the final step in the continuum of homebuyer support before, during and after the purchase process that VCCDC is proud to offer.

“From House To Home” Homeowner Workshops

Post-Purchase Coaching

One-on-one post-purchase coaching is also encouraged to help ensure that the homeownership experience is a successful one. VCCDC's Homeownership Specialist will assist homeowners with valuable information and guidance on maintaining and preserving their home. Some of the information provided includes record keeping, budgeting, home maintenance and repairs, what to do if one falls behind on mortgage payments, and much more.
