Message to Homebuyers
The TurnKey products are offered in partnership with FHLBank members. FHLBank does not work directly with homebuyers and does not originate home loans. Contact a participating  FHLBank member to apply.

 

Homebuyer Education

Homebuyer education is required for HSP and HSP+. FHLBank will accept certificates from providers approved by the organizations listed below. In general, if the homebuyer education provider is accepted by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, FHLBank will accept the course. This includes the online courses CreditSmart, Framework and Homeview.

 

General Homebuyer Education Requirements:

  • Homebuyer education must be completed within the current or previous calendar year of the purchase closing date. The date of course completion must be visible on the homebuyer education certificate.
  • Only one adult household member must complete the homebuyer education course and be named on the certificate.
  • The provider must sign the certificate if the course is taken in a classroom or face-to-face setting. If the course is taken online, the homebuyers signature is not required.
  • If Homebuyer Education is taken through an online platform, such as EHomeAmerica, ensure the provider meets FHLBank Requirements. EHomeAmerica is not the Homebuyer Education provider.

 

FHLBank recommends the required homebuyer education course be taken prior to the loan closing.
