The Employer-Assisted Housing (EAH) class is a unique opportunity to expand your business by working with local employers so that they can help their employees become homeowners or afford a home close to work.
The EAH Class also teaches participants how to form an action plan to implement an EAH program locally. The action plan includes conducting research on a community, creating a team with lenders and non-profit housing organizations, identifying and contacting employers, and meeting with the employer. Tools and resources are presented for each step and include letter templates to the employer, lender and non-profit, a homebuyer workshop template and a customizable brochure for employers.
By taking the EAH Class, you may be able to expand your client base, gain referrals, increase your name recognition, and strengthen and revitalize your community.
The four-hour EAH class presents an overview of employer-assisted housing including the three EAH benefit options employers can implement with your assistance:
Homebuyer & Homeownership Education:
REALTORS® conduct homebuyer and homeownership workshops at the workplace in partnership with a non-profit organization and/or lender. When employees learn about the home-buying process and that they may be able to purchase a new home, new markets of opportunity open for you.
REALTORS® create relationships with local housing non-profit organizations who can offer counseling to employees either at the workplace or off-site.
REALTORS®, and their partners, review with the employer the variety of financial assistance options that they can offer to their employees to purchase a home including grants, loans and matching savings.
