First Time Home Buyer Education

Since 1991, QCAP has helped thousands of people realize their dream of owning a home through comprehensive First Time Home Buyer (FTHB) education. QCAP’s FTHB workshop takes place over the course of two sessions for a total of nine hours. They are held at various times throughout the year. Advanced registration is required and each participant is charged $30. Please see our calendar to the right for an upcoming QCAP workshop. To locate a home buyer workshop in other regions of Massachusetts, visit the Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA) website.

In addition to the in-person FTHB workshop, QCAP also offers an online version. “Framework” is an online course for those who desire the convenience of a self-paced course that can be completed almost entirely at home. After the online course is completed with an overall score of 80 or above, a face-to-face session with a Homeownership Counselor, lasting about one hour, is required to obtain the certificate. The total cost of the online education, including the face to face counseling, is $100. The nonrefundable cost for the online portion of the FTHB workshop is $75. To register for the “Framework” course, visit: https://qcap.frameworkhomeownership.org . To request the required one to one follow-up session, please contact 617-479-8181, ext. 315. The $25 fee will be collected at the in person session.

Graduates of QCAP’s FTHB workshops receive a certificate of completion and may qualify for a variety of mortgages through Massachusetts Housing Partnership or MassHousing as well as through conventional lending sources. QCAP also provides one-on-one counseling for potential First Time Homebuyers who are looking for more individualized assistance. Potential homeowners looking for this service may call (617) 479-8181 x 376 for further assistance.
