Homebuying 100: Introduction to Homebuying (September 2022)

September 15, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Homebuying 100 is an introduction to the homebuying process that will help participants evaluate if homeownership is a good option for them. Participants will learn how to compare the net benefit of renting versus buying and become aware of the considerations of becoming a homeowner, beyond just the potential mortgage payment. This abbreviated course is for anyone wondering if homeownership might be feasible for them but is not yet ready or able to commit to a full first-time homebuyer class. Some topics covered include property types and associated responsibilities, budget and financial considerations beyond the mortgage payment, homeownership as an investment, first-time homebuyer programs, and the current housing market.

Date: Thursday, September 15th

Time: 5:30- 6:30 PM
