New Home Buyer Workshops in Pasco County, Florida to Begin in January 2010

Pasco county_seal I just received information from the county about the new classes that will be available for home buyers who want to use the assistance programs available through Pasco County. These will begin after the new year has begun.

In an earlier post I reported that they had been suspended due to the looming expiration of the home buyers tax credit. Now that this credit has been extended into 2010 the classes are resuming. Also keep in mind that there are other forms of assistance available in the county that require that you attend these workshops. So here they are:

  • Thursdays, January 7th and 14th, 2010 from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM at the Alice Hall Community Center at 38116 5th Avenue, Zephyrhills next to Zephyr Park. You must attend BOTH sessions! 
  • Thursdays, March 4th and 11th, 2010 from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM at the American Legion Hall at 37745 Church Avenue, Dade City. You must attend BOTH sessions!
  • Joining Hands Community Mission located at 3214 US Highway 19, Holiday. There are two separate full days, and you only are required to attend one of them. You do not have to attend both. The first will take place on Saturday, January 23, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Or you can attend the second one on Saturday, February 13, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Both of these are all-day session that is why you only have to go once instead of two evenings like the previous ones I mentioned.
  • Pasco County Commissioners Offices at 7530 Little Road, New Port Richey. You have two pairs of evening sessions you can attend at this location.
    • Mondays, February 1st and 8th from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM with attendance at BOTH sessions required OR
    • Thursdays, March 18th and 25th from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM with attendance at BOTH sessions required.

Do note that there will not be childcare available while the workshops are taking place. 

Topics that will be covered are:

  • Determining the price of the home that you can afford

  • Down payment and closing cost assistance

  • Pre-qualifying for financing VS Getting Pre-approved

  • Shopping for interest rates

  • Closing on a home loan
