Framework is the only online homebuyer course designed by experts in online learning. It’s comprehensive, so you’ll have all the facts you need to navigate every step of the buying process. And you can learn when, where, and how you like. It even works on your smartphone. Framework meets many lenders’ requirements for homebuyer education, but check with yours to make sure an online course is acceptable.
