Let's face it, buying a home can be a daunting experience. And even if you have purchased one in the past, things have changed a lot lately. New ways of financing, new regulations, new contract forms, etc. I was at a meeting today at the county offices and I got some information that I thought you might find helpful.
In Pasco County, Florida workshops are being held throughout the year for people who are considering buying a home. These are held at various times at many locations around the county, so you should be able to find a time and place that is convenient for you. Also keep in mind that several buyers assistance programs require that buyers attend these types of workshops so that they can be informed consumers and know what they are doing when they buy a home.
Some of the topics covered are:
- Determining the price of the home you can afford
- Down payment and closing cost assistance
- Pre-Qualification VS Pre-Approval
- Shopping for a Mortgage
- Closing on a Home Loan
- Qualifying for a Home Mortgage Loan
- Free Financial Counseling
- And Other Related Topics
