It's important to go into purchasing a home with all the tools and knowledge you need to make the best decisions for you and your family.
Local Home Buyer Educational courses are available that can walk you through the process of buying a home. These courses are typically hosted by local non-profits, and provide a variety of options to try and meet everyone's schedule.
The Home Ownership Center can help you find a class that fits your needs and schedule: http://www.hocmn.org/search-workshops
