How to Get Started

If you'd like to learn more about getting a new home, please review the following steps:

  1. Sign-up for a Homebuyer Education class with NeighborWorks. Participating in the Homebuyer Education allows you to become eligible for financial subsidies to assist with purchasing your new home. If this is your first time buying a home, the course will help prepare you for the homebuying process.
  2. After you've taken the Homebuyer Education class, contact your local Homeownership Center through the NeighborWorks Alliance to get connected with an advisor to assist you while you navigate the next steps of the process.
  3. Apply for a manufactured housing down payment loan through Champlain Housing Trust.
  4. Apply for a Section 504 Home Repair loan through the USDA’s Rural Development program.
  5. Once you have completed steps 1-4 and have the information for what financial subsidies for which you are eligible, call Efficiency Vermont. We’ll help you compare housing options, review all incentives and financing, and connect you with a builder.

Give us a call at any point for additional information and support.
