HUD certificate

At Coastal, at our in-person workshops, we offer the Certificate of Completion that is required for state programs such as Mass Housing, MHP One Mortgage, and some local bank programs. At the workshops, participants get to hear from real estate professionals and ask them questions. For those who may find they need the HUD Certificate, for a specific loan program, we can now also offer  that through our connection with Framework, an online program.

If someone is unable to attend in person, they can do the online program and then complete the certificate process with us. The fee is $75 to Framework and $25 to Coastal, each paid separately. The link for Coastal at Framework is here.

Anyone who completes our in-person workshop who later finds they need a HUD certificate can take the online course through the link above and we will waive the additional $25.
