Pathfinder to hold home buyer class

Posted: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Pathfinder Community Connections, the Community Development division of Pathfinder Services, will hold a four hour class focused on information about becoming a successful home buyer/owner Thursday, February 24. The classes will take place at Pathfinder Community Connections, 2824 Theater Avenue, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The Home Buyer Education class includes information such as: is owning a home right for you; steps in the home buying process; what is a mortgage; other costs of home ownership; how much house can you afford; improving your credit score; shopping for the right lender and loan product; definitions of escrow, appraisal, and equity; and how to be a good neighbor.

“It is important to educate potential home owners on what it takes to buy and maintain a home,” stated Natalie Fisher, Homeownership Education Coordinator for Pathfinder Community Connections. “Potential home buyers who qualify for our program include those who have never owned a home, have not owned a home in the past three years, have always rented or lived with family members, or are in the process of selling their home. We also want to talk to families who want to own a home but believe they cannot afford it, because in many cases they can.” Fisher concluded.

Pathfinder Community Connections customers can take Home Buyer Education classes free of charge. For those who are not a Pathfinder Community Connections customer the cost is $100 for both classes. For more information or to register for the classes contact Natalie Fisher at Pathfinder Community Connections at (260) 356-0521 Ext. 3213 or e-mail at nfisher@pathfinderservices.org.
