Homebuyer Educational Opportunities Take Place August 23 and 30 at Clock Electric
The prospect of pursuing home ownership might be a dream come true, but are you truly ready to make an offer? By preparing ahead of time, you can enter the homebuying process with more confidence.
LakewoodAlive is teaming with Empowering and Strengthening Ohio’s People (ESOP) – a full-service, HUD-approved housing and financial counseling agency – and Third Federal Savings & Loan to offer a pair of educational workshops for prospective homebuyers. The free, two-part Homebuyer Education Workshop Series will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, August 23, and Thursday, August 30, at Clock Electric, Inc. (1624 Coutant Avenue) in Lakewood.
To register for this FREE homebuyer workshop series, call 216-361-0718.
This workshop series will teach the important basics of homebuying, equipping attendees with knowledge to successfully maneuver through this process. Attendees are strongly encouraged to attend both portions, as the August 30 course will build on that from August 23. Covered homebuyer topics will include:
- Homeownership Readiness
- Budgeting and Credit Management
- Accessing Affordable Mortgage Products
- Shopping for a Home
- Maintaining a Home
Prospective homebuyers will also have a chance to learn about Third Federal’s homeownership opportunities for downpayment assistance, as well as the City of Lakewood’s downpayment assistance program.
“By striving to enhance homebuyer education, we’re able to better fulfill our mission to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods in Lakewood,” said Allison Urbanek, LakewoodAlive’s Housing Outreach Director. “Purchasing a home represents a major life milestone for anyone, and our workshop series is designed to assist prospective homebuyers along the way, providing education and peace of mind.”
