Hawaii HomeOwnership Center

Hawaii HomeOwnership Center

The mission of the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center is to provide education, information and support to create successful first-time homeowners in Hawaii. By addressing barriers and increasing rates of home ownership, the HomeOwnership Center aims to build stronger families and communities throughout the state of Hawaii. Their vision is to substantially increase the number of successful homeowners by reaching out to low- and moderate-income families who never believed they would become homeowners. 

Why should you come to the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center?
The Center provides you with all the information and services you need to become a homeowner—all in one place. You can attend a free, one-hour orientation to get information on what it takes to become a homeowner. The orientation class will give you an introduction to home ownership, assess your readiness to buy a home, and describe the home-buying process. A home could be a single-family, multi-family, condominium or townhouse unit. 

What services are offered by the Center?

  • Home buyer education
  • One-on-one counseling
  • Financial literacy training
  • Referrals to professional services (REALTORS®, lenders, insurance)
  • Post-purchase counseling
How much will these services cost?
The one-hour home buyer orientation class is free to all interested home buyers. If you are interested in taking the next step, you will be asked to fill out an intake form. 

There is a $60 lifetime membership fee that allows you unlimited access to the homebuyer education classes, individual coaching sessions, and post-purchase services. The fee is assessed by "buying-unit" so no matter how many people are involved in your home purchase, it's still one membership fee of $60.

All one-on-one counseling is included at no additional charge.
