Parkview Services began offering pre-purchase homeownership counseling and education in 2006. With down-payment assistance funding for low-to-moderate income first-time homebuyers with disabilities and the family members who lived with them granted by the Washington Housing Trust Fund, Parkview’s pre-purchase counselors began to work with individuals and families to break down traditional barriers to homeownership. Since inception of pre-purchase services, we have helped 127 households become first-time homeowners through a unique combination of home buyer education, one-on-one housing counseling and layered down payment assistance.
