Community • BEDC Housing Counseling
All of the BEDC counselors are Certified Housing Counselors. Our counselors can help you identify any issues that would prevent you from qualifying for a home and then help you create a workable plan to correct those issues, as well as provide education and guidance in home budgeting and homeownership readiness. If you would like the BEDC to access a soft pull credit report that does not lower your credit score like a hard pull from a creditor, you will pay the $20.00 fee per person for your credit report. If you have a recent credit report, bring it and there will be no cost. To schedule your free housing counseling, download the BEDC intake form and return it to the BEDC with the required documents
