Homeownership Education by Framework

Buying a home can be an intimidating process whether you're searching for the right house or shopping for the best mortgage. That's why Fannie Mae has partnered with Framework, a leading provider of homeownership education. Framework offers an interactive online training course to help you understand the homebuying process and prepare for homeownership. Even previous buyers can benefit from the training as a valuable, up-to-date review.

Framework's course meets the housing counseling standards established by HUD and the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling. It also fulfills the homeownership education requirement for Fannie Mae’s HomeReady mortgage.
