The National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling are a set of guidelines for quality homeownership and counseling services. Industry professionals who adopt these standards can be trusted to provide consistent, high quality advice.
Helping individuals and families to achieve the dream of homeownership is no small challenge.
Homeownership education and counseling is a critical step in producing an informed consumer who is better equipped to sustain homeownership.
These Standards help practitioners and organizations serve families and communities with consistent service and professional excellence.
The Standards help counselors and educators gain the trust of their clients by increasing their skill-set and enhancing their credibility. We encourage practitioners to work with their Executive Director and Board to adopt the National Industry Standards.
Professionals who adopt the National Industry Standards provide correct and consistent information before and after the home purchase. Adopting practitioners can be counted upon to serve you with competence, fairness, and respect.
Organizations adopting National Industry Standards encourage practitioners to perform to the highest level of professionalism, and thereby reassure funders and fee-paying clients of the quality and consistency of their services.Organizations are encouraged to adopt and follow the National Industry Standards.
