Here at The Orlicki Group we believe that home ownership is one of the keys to long term financial stability and long term happiness. The US census bureau noted that almost 64% of US Citizens are home owners. With rent forecasting to increase once again in 2018 annually more and more people will be looking to buy and invest in their future or expand on their portfolio of existing homes.
Whether you are a first time home buyer or a long time home owner who hasn’t purchased a home in a long time Framework is an inexpensive online learning course that can be an important tool in your toolbox through the home buying process. The Framework course has a comprehensive curriculum that meets HUD guidelines and exceeds National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling.

“Framework Homeownership LLC was founded in 2012 by two nonprofit leaders in homeownership – Housing Partnership Network and Minnesota Homeownership Center – both HUD-approved housing counseling intermediaries.

In 2012 we observed that while both the market and the homebuyers within it had changed, the way people approached buying (and owning) a home had not. Plus, the research was clear: informed homebuyers are more likely to be successful homeowners.

And so we did what needed to be done. We dedicated ourselves to making smart homeownership the new norm nationwide by leveraging technology to reach a new generation of homebuyers and homeowners. We’re doing this with a superior curriculum, the latest technology, dedication to our customers, and innovative relationships with lenders, brokers, and a network of nonprofit partners.”
