CDCs provided 4,591 One (Soft-Second) Mortgage Recipients with Pre-Purchase Education between 2004 - 2015

Over the past 11 years, CDCs across the Commonwealth have provided critical training and educational services to future homebuyers.  Pre-purchase education for prospective homebuyers is a vital resource that helps people not only prepare to purchase a home, but also helps qualify them for the One Mortgage, formally Soft Second Loan, program.

Check out the table below to see the number of individuals who not only graduated from a pre-purchase homebuyer course offered by a CDC, but also used the One Mortgage or Soft Second program to buy their home. (Source: MHP)
