As a HUD housing counseling agency, Consolidated Credit will provide Reverse Equity Mortgage Counseling, which is designed to assist primarily senior homeowners to be able to spend the equity in their home while still continuing to live at their residence. They will also provide Post-Purchase Counseling to help struggling homeowners. This is a vital part of the homebuyer education process because it supports successful long-term homeownership.
Consolidated Credit will also provide Predatory Lending Education, Financial Management/Budgeting, and Home Buyer Education Workshops. These workshops are designed to provide basic financial literacy skills and other information homeowners and prospective homebuyers can use to make wise financial decisions regarding their homes, to get the best possible rates to which their credit entitles them, and to help them avoid unscrupulous lenders and unregulated financial institutions.
