“Our association with NeighborWorks America has brought a lot of resources to the counties we serve.”
HOC Executive Director
Among the HomeOwnership Center’s many strengths are our close relationships with other consumer-focused lending institutions and real estate industry professionals.
These relationships not only expand the universe of products and services available to our customers, but also simplify the home buying process by making HOC a “one-stop shop” for prospective home buyers and current home owners:
- We work with a range of lending institutions, including other non-profits, banks, and local, state and federal government housing and finance agencies.
- As a chartered member of NeighborWorks America we’re able to leverage the strength of a national network of more than 200 community-based nonprofit organizations serving more than 4,500 communities nationwide.
- We assist home buyers with finding local service providers—including real estate agents, appraisers, home inspectors, attorneys, title companies, insurance agents, building contractors and other professionals—to make the purchase process go smoother.
- We also assist local service providers by helping to ensure that home buyers are financially fit and mortgage-ready, through proven financial counseling and home buyer education.
After more than 15 years in business, we’re proud of the many strong relationships we’ve built with national, regional and local community-based firms. Some of those institutions are listed below.
