James City County offers free class for First-time Homebuyers
The James City County Office of Housing and Community Development will hold a First-time Homebuyer class on Tuesday, Nov. 19 and Thursday, Nov. 21 from 6-9 p.m. at the Law Enforcement Center Community Room, 4600 Opportunity Way.
Anyone who is currently purchasing a home or is considering a purchase in the future will benefit from this class. Topics covered include personal finances, credit and credit scoring, qualifying and applying for a loan, choosing the right home, the need for a home inspection and what happens at a loan closing.
For many applicants, the mortgage company requires them to complete a home buyers class prior to loan approval. Those who attend both sessions will receive a certificate of completion.
Space is limited and registration closes Nov. 18. To register for the class, call 757-259-5340. For more information about the First-time Homebuyer Program, visit the website or call 757-259-5340.
