Post-purchase counseling provides new and existing homeowners the support they need to maintain their investment in their home. Homeownership comes with a number of challenges, and post-purchase counseling helps keep homeowners on track. Counselors will work with you to understand your goals and challenges, then provide the right support (guidance on how to deal with banks and/or mortgage companies, county appraisal district issues assistance, etc.).
