Basics of Home Buying

Trade School Indy

You probably keep hearing people say things like “Now is the time to buy!” and “Why pay that much in rent when you could be in your own home?”. The truth is – interest rates are low, and it is a great time to purchase a home! We want to make sure you know exactly how the process goes – from getting pre-qualified to closing and getting the keys handed over to you! In this class, you will learn the basics of the home buying process, as well as helpful tips and things to consider. Even if you already own a home, we have valuable tips and best practices to make sure that your next purchase is smooth and stress-free. *If you are an existing homeowner, feel free to bring a copy of your latest mortgage statement or insurance declaration page and we are happy to review and give advice! *Our class is accepting barter items that will be donated to the Legacy House, an organization that provides free support and counseling services for adults and children who are victims of violence. A representative from Legacy House will be on-hand should you want to learn about the organization afterward.
