Reminder: June Home Buyer Education Seminar

We’re just a couple weeks out from this seminar, and advanced registration is very useful.  I’ll go ahead and quote the previous announcement for an updated description.

This is a great class to take, especially for first time home buyers.  It covers a ton of material, including whether you should buy, how to budget, how to get a mortgage, and how to find a house.  The class is free and doesn’t come with any obligations.  I literally will not even send you a “Thanks for coming,” after the class unless you explicitly give me permission to.  This is about giving you information that’ll help you make the right choices for you.

It also meets the education requirement necessary to qualify for WSHFC commission programs.  If you’re a challenged buyer (meaning low income, low savings, or shaky credit), these programs can be a huge help.  The class is worth going to on its own, but this is a big bonus.

The class is happening in the big meeting room of the Rainier Beach branch of the public library.  This time I’m teaching with Jan Watkins from AP Mortgage.  RSVP to me for a seat and I’ll get you registered.

Upcoming Home Buyer Education

I’m happy to announce two upcoming dates for home buyer education classes sponsored by the Washington State Housing Finance commission.  Both sessions will take place in the big meeting room at the Rainier Public Library, and I’ll be the broker half of the two part Loan Officer / Broker team for both.

This is a great class to take, especially for first time home buyers.  It covers a ton of material, including whether you should buy, how to budget, how to get a mortgage, and how to find a house.  The class is free and doesn’t come with any obligations.  I literally will not even send you a “Thanks for coming,” after the class unless you explicitly give me permission to.  This is about giving you information that’ll help you make the right choices for you.

The room space is generous, but not infinite, and we have to make sure we bring enough material for all attendees, so if you’d like to come, please register ahead of time.  You can do that by contacting me by phone or email.  (Check the bottom of this page for contact info.)  The dates and times for the classes are below.

April 23, 11:00 am – 4:30pm

Upcoming Event: Home Buyer Education

The Washington State Housing Finance Commission has a lot of opportunities for first time and low income home buyers to help them get into homes.  This kind of help can be especially helpful when trying to buy in the tough market in and around Seattle.  For purposes of many of these programs, looking in these areas, low income means under $96,000 for the household.

To qualify for the programs, buyers have to take a five hour buyer education seminar.  I’m one of their certified instructors for these seminars, and I’ll be co-teaching one with Joshua Horner of Caliber Home Loans at their East Lake location.  The event will be from 11-5 and RSVP is required.  Contact me if you’d like to attend – seating is limited, but I’ll start a waiting list if we fill up.
