The Urban League of Greater Hartford's Center for Economic Enrichment provides Pre-Purchase counseling services to the general public by certified housing counselors. Clients are encouraged to call and schedule a one on one counseling session with one of our housing counselors. Counseling sessions focus on the financial preparedness and mortgage readiness of the client.
During the counseling session, the Housing Counselor works with the client to formulate a detailed budget. The budget will assist the client in determining their financial strength and opportunities for improvement, which include evaluation of his or her situation and identifying potential lending barriers.
