Getting Started

Take Root Wisconsin recommends that everyone start on the path to homeownership by working with a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency. Individuals that complete 8-hours of homebuyer education will learn money management techniques, review their credit, learn about financing options, and discover how to work with a Realtor and choose a home. Housing counseling agencies will also determine if you qualify for special homeownership grant programs like down payment assistance, tax credits or other programs.

Financing Your Home

There are many financing options available in the real estate market. If you’re looking for a home mortgage for the first time, it may be difficult to sort through all the financing options that are available. Having a good real estate team to assist you as you navigate the process can make a difference in choosing the right loan product and house that is right for you.
