Independent voices from the TWT Communities
"Everyone needs pre-purchase education, even people who have graduated from Harvard Law School," said Marian Siegel, executive director of Housing Counseling Services in the District.
"Everyone has their hand in your pocket during the home-buying process, from the lender to the Realtor to the appraiser to the home inspector to the title company," Ms. Siegel said. "If you work with a HUD-approved nonprofit housing-counseling agency, you can get help from a truly disconnected voice. There's no economic value to these agencies in your buying a home or not, so we are truly neutral."
