Comprehensive Mortgage Program Overview

MaineHousing offers a 3 hour training class for real estate professionals which provides a comprehensive overview of MaineHousing's mortgage programs and the benefits to borrowers, sellers and real estate professionals.

Key elements covered during the training class include:

  • And more . . .
