BE A BUYER – Another way to get to $5K

Posted July 26, 2016

If becoming a home buyer seems like a jigsaw puzzle, a mystery novel or a carnival ride, come to BE A BUYER on August 9th. We’ll talk about our $5,000 DRC Home Buyer Grant program for 21222 and County 21224, the importance of home buyer certification, and you’ll have an opportunity to ask lots of questions. Financing a home, searching for a home, qualifying for grants and special loan programs – we’ll cover all this, and more. It’s free, snacks are served, and we’ll give away a door prize worth $50!

Our grant rules require attendance at one of our home buyer events – BE A BUYER satisfies that qualification.  Home buyer counseling and certification is another, and if you don’t know about that process, we’ll give you the information you need. We’ll also cover County and State financial assistance that may work for you.

A buyer’s real estate agent will talk about your home search in your price range, how negotiations are handled, various inspections that are important, and how to successfully get to the settlement table.

A loan officer from BB&T will explain the mortgage pre-approval process,  your down payment and closing costs, credit reports and repair, the home appraisal and inspection, budgeting for home ownership, the role of the title company,  and their own loan programs for first-time and low-to-middle income households.

Get all of this great advice in one short evening! Registration is important – we have space for 25! Click here and be sure to register anyone else that will come with you.
