The Waltham Alliance to Create Housing will hold a course for first-time homebuyers next month, covering such issues as credit ratings, budgeting, qualifying for a mortgage, shopping for a home, legal aspects of home buying and the responsibilities of being a homeowner.
The WATCH class is certified by CHAPA's Massachusetts Homeownership Collaborative, so graduates may be eligible for down-payment assistance from their community, or other assistance for first-time homebuyers.
The fee is $40. All classes take place in Waltham, with the date yet to be finalized.
The course is being sponsored by TD Bank.
