Homebuying Workshops

Nevada Housing Division’s homebuyer workshops are designed to empower state employees on their journey toward homeownership. We offer group workshops and individual homebuyer education sessions, focusing on the key components of the homebuying process and overall financial literacy. We aim to equip you with the knowledge, tools, and guidance necessary to build and improve your financial health with the end goal of homeownership.

Owning a home helps stabilize your living costs, enables you to build equity, and allows you to fully customize a living space you can take pride in. Homeownership also fuels our economy and contributes to a sense of belonging, strengthening neighborhoods and our community as a whole.

Group Workshops

Our 1-hour group workshops are available in-person or online.

This comprehensive workshop covers all aspects of the purchasing process, from financial preparation to closing on your new home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Individual Homebuyer Education Sessions

If I sign up for a Nevada Housing Division session, will my credit report be accessed?

We will only access your credit if it is relevant to your financial counseling and will only do so with your permission. We only use one credit reporting agency, Experian.

Would my credit score be negatively impacted if I provide approval for the credit report to be pulled by NHD?

A soft inquiry — also called a soft pull — allows a financial counselor to review your credit report and credit score to get a sense of how well you are managing your credit. It will not negatively impact your score.

Are these sessions confidential?

Yes, information discussed in the session is not reported to anyone unless otherwise disclosed or agreed to by you.
