Homebuyer Education

Looking to buy a home?

Whether this is your first home, or it’s been a while since you bought, you may have questions about the financing process. Our residential lending experts offer various homebuyer workshops and seminars in our communities and virtual/online. Find a Loan Officer near you, or we invite you to join us at one of our upcoming homebuyer education sessions.


Homebuyer Education Seminars

We offer two types of homebuyer education courses. For Washington homebuyers seeking credit hours that qualify for state down payment options and loan programs, our Washington State-certified instructors host 5-hour sessions in various locations. 

Our residential lending experts also host mortgage-ready events. These sessions are generally 1-2 hours, cover homebuyer topics and are offered at locations in markets we serve. Check out the schedule below for more information and to register for these events.
