CHFA offers Hartford homebuyer tutorials

7/2/2014
The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority is offering Hartford homebuyers financing tutorials, starting July through September, to improve owners' chances of getting the best deal while avoiding foreclosure and other ownership headaches.

CHFA promotes affordable housing through low-interest funding to buyers of single- and multifamily dwellings in the state.

"Attending a homebuyer education class plays an important role in becoming a successful homeowner," housing finance authority President Eric Chatman said. "We know that borrowers who have taken the classes are 29 percent less likely to become seriously delinquent on their mortgage.''
