Housing Education Will Help Find Your Dream Home

Housing Education Will Help Find Your Dream Home

Money Magazine recently printed a story about the housing market in the United States. The good news is that housing is back, and new home sales are the highest they have been since the 2008 housing season. The news comes as a shock to some people because they think that the market is still in the basement. Do not believe that at all. A real estate agent is going to tell you that now is the right time to go looking for a house.

Lack of Knowledge Makes Buyers Nervous

What holds many people back is a lack of understanding when it comes to the financing of the home. This is particularly the case with somebody who is a first-time buyer. These folks do not know much about real estate, and the sizable mortgage can frighten them. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is sensitive to the educational needs of these consumers. Our financial wellness program includes housing education as a benefit option.

The more people know about housing; the more confident they are seeking a new home. Our housing education includes some valuable information such as:

  • The importance of your credit history in securing a mortgage loan;
  • How to go about being approved for a loan;
  • What predatory lending practices are, and how to avoid them;
  • The information you need to supply the lenders;
  • The kind of loans that you may qualify to receive.

This is just some of what you will be exposed to in our “Make Your Move” homebuyer education course. You learn about all the players who are participating in a home purchase and some other crucial pieces of information about how to properly purchase the house.

Education Builds Confidence

Financing is always in the minds of the consumer. There still are people who are worried about their current mortgage and fear that they may have to go through foreclosure. Countrywide has certified housing counselors who can assist. As part of our financial wellness program, these counselors are going to provide the kind of help a person needs to maintain financial integrity. There are a number of ways that foreclosure can be avoided, including loan modifications and short sales. These are topics that are covered with plan members. Naturally, a person feels less stressed when he or she discovers that foreclosure or bankruptcy are not the only ways out of a jam.

Organizations can look at this as one of the better benefits to offer employees. Housing is always a concern and is a mystery to quite a few people. It is sincerely appreciated when an employer thinks outside the box and provides real assistance. Housing education is a service that brings lots of relief to hard-working employees. This kind of support creates the employee loyalty that any management wants to see in the workplace.

A home should be a dream come for anyone. It does not have to be a financial nightmare. The educational assistance the Countrywide financial wellness program will provide is a means of making a dream become a reality. The more you know, the better your home buying experience is going to be for you. Countrywide can fill in the gaps, making you a more knowledgeable house hunter.

Client Reviews
The legal plan has been a great resource and they commonly align the practice area with the best of the best. I have used this in multiple states and locations for a range of services and have saved 10x program costs. I highly recommend this service and is a great benefit MTM provides us.
★★★★★
I have been able to personally recommend this to a number of our people base on the excellent service and quality advice that I have received over the last two years. I have been able to have a new will drawn up, have received advice and review of real estate contracts both in New Jersey and Florida, and have had occasion, unfortunately, to seek advice on criminal charges filed against one of my teenagers. We were delighted when the charges were dropped, the direct result of the representation of the lawyer I immediately contacted from Countrywide. I will continue to recommend Countrywide based on my personal experience as well as the feedback that I have received from our employees. P. Daniels HR Director
★★★★★
We have offered Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services to our employees since 2007. At the time, we were looking for a unique, low cost benefit offering for our employees. I had heard about pre-paid legal services, but must admit, I didn’t think our employees would get much bang for their buck. I was wrong, I was stunned at how many employees actually enrolled in the plan during that first year. Our enrollment continues to be strong and employees rave about the benefit year after year. The plan is simple to administer and Countrywide handle everything in an organized, professional manner. It’s been a very well-received benefit for our employees. J. Magrowski, VP Human Resources
★★★★★
I am very pleased to recommend Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services as your legal plan provider. Our benefits philosophy is to attract, motivate, reward and retain the best employees and Countrywide complimented our total rewards package. The set up and rollout of this plan was well organized and quite easy to administer. Countrywide has been easy to work with, has attended our benefit fairs, group meetings and provides us with all communication pieces for open enrollment. J. Kilpatrick Benefits Manager
★★★★★
We made a decision to offer Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services as a voluntary benefit to our full-time employees. The benefit was well-received by employees and enrollment has been consistently high. The plan is easy to administer and fully paid at the employee level. Countrywide attends all of our employee fairs, gives an excellent presentation to our employees and they are timely and responsive to our request for information. From an HR perspective, I can highly recommend this service to any company looking to enhance their employee benefits package with quality choices while keeping costs manageable. S. Phillips, VP, Human Resources
