Homebuyer Education

Prepare Your Borrowers for Long-Term Success

You've seen it before. A first-time homebuyer, like Ed, who simply doesn't know how to prepare for the home buying process.

Genworth's self-paced, mobile friendly, online Homebuyer Education course is a great no-fee resource that you can offer to your borrowers including those using Home Possible® (not accepted for HomeReady® borrowers). Helping you help your borrowers is what it's all about.

Educated borrowers make good homeowners.

Borrowers who understand the homebuying process are less likely to default on their loan. Our course explains in easy-to-understand terms:

  • How the home loan process works
  • Understanding and improving credit scores​
  • How to plan for home maintenance expenses

It’s easy to get started.

You can register your borrowers here! Your borrowers can start the course right after they register or they can take it at their convenience via the confirmation email you and your borrower will receive. After completing the course's assessment, a Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you and your borrowers.

We recommend registering your borrowers at least two (2) weeks before the loan closing date.
