Homebuyer Bootcamp: Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. 

Are you considering leaving your rental behind and becoming a homeowner? At this seminar, you’ll learn crucial information necessary for home buying success and leave with all the tools you need to get started on your search:


• The importance of good credit

• Finding the right mortgage loan program for you 

• The difference between buyer agents and listing agents 

• How to win a bidding war

• Items to include in the offer that some buyers leave out 

• How to get the most from your home inspection

Buying your home is likely the largest and most important financial commitment you will make. Buyers with the latest information will be more successful in the ever-changing real estate market.

VA Home Loan Benefits: Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

This class will discuss the benefits of the VA guaranteed home loan. Available to active duty personnel, veterans, reservists and National Guard personnel, as well as surviving spouses, VA loans can be used for purchases or refinances. Down payments are as low as 0 percent, with no private mortgage insurance.
