For those thinking about buying a home but unsure of where to start, a free homebuyer education workshop is a good place to begin. The workshop is being offered on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County, 600 Cleveland St., Suite 800, Clearwater.
Attendees will learn the basics of the home buying process, including helpful resource information on down payment assistance and homes for sale. The workshop is especially helpful for those who are working with a lender and need a homebuyer education class certificate or have owned a home before and are considering a new purchase.
Course materials from NeighborWorks America will be available for purchase by check or cash. The books feature comprehensive materials, helpful in navigating the home buying process. The cost is $17. Those who complete the class will also have the opportunity to win door prizes.
The class size is limited so those interested should call (727) 464-8210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. The workshop is sponsored by the Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County and the Pinellas Community Housing Foundation.
