WATCH’s class is certified by CHAPA's Massachusetts Homeownership Collaborative, so graduates may be eligible for Down Payment Assistance programs from their City or Town or for the Soft Second mortgage(link is external) or other mortgages designed for first time homebuyers. The class fee is $50 per person or $75 per couple. All classes take place in Waltham.
Couples purchasing a home together are both encouraged to attend, although (unless your mortgage lender tells you otherwise) only one person is required to complete the course in order to qualify for downpayment assistance or the Soft Second mortgage
