Plan for and Achieve the Dream of Homeownership

Whether you’re about to start the journey to buying your first home or struggling with an existing mortgage, Guidewell Financial’s housing counseling and education programs can help set you on your path toward secure, stable homeownership.

We understand that buying a home—or worrying about losing one—can be stressful. Learning all you can early in the process can bring you peace of mind. Our counselors will give you easy-to-understand information so you can make smart financial decisions.

  • Our programs for new homebuyers can help you plan for a home that fits your budget, search for the right mortgage, and prepare to be a successful homeowner.
  • For senior homeowners, we can show you how a reverse mortgage works and help you decide if that would be a good choice for you.
  • If you have fallen behind in your mortgage payments or think you may have trouble in the future, our counselors will analyze your finances and explore ways to prevent foreclosure and let you stay in your home.
"Buying a home is such a big investment. Without some help, you could easily end up in jeopardy. The Guidewell Financial homeownership workshop I attended answered many of my questions.”
