Coming Home Again

Designing, Financing and Administering

First-Time Home Buyer Programs

A Freddie-Mac Housing Outreach Initiative




 Much has changed in the mortgage lending industry since the Great Recession - new mortgage products, new regulatory requirements, improved underwriting tools, creative subsidy approaches, even new acronyms. Yet, access to mortgage credit remains too difficult for many new buyers, especially in underserved markets. 

The Nickerson Group has developed and launched a series of free one-day workshops, called "Coming Home Again” across the nation.  Sponsored by Freddie Mac and participating mortgage lending institutions, these workshops focus on the design, financing, and administration of First-Time Homebuyer Programs. 


Who Should Attend

 This series of interactive workshops focuses on helping nonprofit developers, counseling agencies, state and local government agencies, and other housing providers to successfully assist underserved households and to stabilize distressed communities.  Participants will receive a comprehensive, free first-time homeownership tool kit and helpful presentation materials.
