Community Development Support Association will hold a free homebuyer education workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 22 at The Non-Profit Center, 114 S. Independence.
The workshop will provide first-time homebuyers information necessary to take some of the mystery out of buying a home. Topics discussed include 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. The course is required for homebuying, using USDA-RD or receiving Federal Home Loan Bank down payment assistance.
“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.
