If you will be using any of the Commission's programs to purchase your home, you must complete the seminar before your loan officer can lock in your interest rate. Many people find they gain enough information at the seminar to successfully locate and finance a home of their own. Others may find they need additional assistance.  Contact us with questions at askusHO@wshfc.org.
