Homebuyer workshop slated
Community Development Support Association will hold a homebuyer education workshop 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 19 at the CDSA branch office, 114 S. Independence.
Participation is required to receive a certificate of completion and qualify for CDSA’s down payment assistance program.
The workshop will provide first-time homebuyers, and anyone thinking about purchasing a new home, information necessary to take some of the mystery out of buying a home. Topics discussed will include the roles of the real estate agent, lender, closing agent and buyer; things to look for when selecting and inspecting a home; budgeting and credit; and post purchase responsibilities and maintenance.
Information also will be provided about CDSA’s homebuyer assistance program. This program can provide assistance for qualified homebuyers to help them with the cost of down payments, closing costs and other expenses associated with purchasing a home.
“The process of shopping for and buying a home can be complicated,” said Mike Biggers, CDSA housing coordinator. “In addition, for most people, the family home is the largest purchase they will make. This course teaches people how to make wise decisions. The information provided in these homebuyer education workshops will help provide the knowledge necessary for a homebuyer to feel more comfortable with the process of buying a home.”
To reserve a spot for this no-cost workshop, call Tami McCarty at 242-6600.
