First Time Home Buyer

  • Buying a home can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be. The more you know, the better prepared you are. That's why Bank Independent offers a brief home buying course offered in conjunction with the FDIC.




    The course is free, and you can take it at your own pace. The two “Your Own Home” modules generally take less than two hours. You can leave the course at any time and come back to it later. All you need is the username and password you set up up initially. Note that the course is offered in English and Spanish. To take the online course, just follow these easy steps.
