Buying a home in Brooklyn

Owning property in the Brooklyn area is challenging. Purchasing a house is only the first step towards successful homeownership. Luckily, IMPACCT Brooklyn is here to help you with all your post-purchase needs. Our free Post-Purchase Workshops cover everything from estate planning and tax laws, deed theft and loan repairing, to working with tenants, and much more.
Of equal importance, we recognize that to maintain our neighborhoods’ ethnic and economic diversity, residents must be given the opportunity to build assets, become financially secure, and actively pursue home and business ownership. Whether one-on-one, in group settings, or through online seminars, we’re here to help.

Our Services Include:

  • Workshops that guide attendees step-by-step towards home ownership.
  • Personal finance workshops to prepare residents for home ownership and other major financial decisions.
  • Counseling for debt management and savings plans.
  • Access to lenders offering below-market-rate loan products, direct grants, and other programs.

“IMPACCT’s program gave me a bit of foresight about what to expect and what to prepare. Without that, it would have been a bit more tenuous because I was going through the homebuying process for the first time.”
