This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on shopping for a home loan is the fourth in a set of six modules on consumer education related to housing. (This set is part of a larger series of sixty-seven modules on the Management Approach to Teaching Consumer and Homemaking Education [MATCHE]--see CE 019 901-967.) Following the module objective and overview, three units of instruction are presented: (1) obtaining a home loan (includes lessons on source of home loans, types of home loans, and qualifying for a home loan); (2) calculating the costs for a home (includes lessons on terminology in home finance, property appraisal and value, and figuring the costs); and (3) closing of financial arrangements for a home (includes lessons on terminology of closing arrangements, closing arrangements, and advantages and disadvantages of buying). Each unit generally includes the following elements: narrative summary, suggested activities, suggested resources, and progress check (with answer key). A module pre/posttest (with answer key) concludes the document. (Workshop proceedings relating to the development of these modules are available in the ERIC system as CE 019 896-899; also available is a module on utilizing FHA-HERO as an instructional strategy to expand and strengthen the home economics instructional programs [CE 019 900].)
