Home Buyer Education Seminars

I am teaching two Home Buyer Education Classes this month sponsored by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission.  Anyone who is interested in buying a home can attend – our class is not limited to first time home buyers.

Home buyers who are interested in programs offered through the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, such as the Home Advantage Program with down payment assistance, are required to take a WSHFC sponsored class.

If you’re interested in attending a class where I will be teaching, you have two opportunities this month:

  • Saturday, July 13, 2013 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in West Seattle at the High Point Library. My co-instructor is Ira Sarachoff.
  • Saturday, July 20, 2013 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Greenlake Library in Seattle. My co-instructor is Jim Reppond.

Lunch is being provided at both of these classes… however, if you have dietary restrictions (or you’re a picky eater 🙂  you may want to bring your own sack lunch.

Both classes are FREE. If you’d like to attend, you can rsvp here.

I’ve always felt that an important part of a mortgage originators job is to educate their clients and make sure their questions are answered before they get to the signing table. I’m very excited to be a part of the Washington State Housing Finance Commission’s program.

  1. This is a great idea. There are so many programs out there to help not only first-time home buyers but others that may qualify. I would tend to believe that a vast majority of consumers are unaware of these programs and history shows that lenders who do know about them are unwilling to inform their clients or are completely disinterested in the help it can provide for their “client.”

  2. I’m so sorry I didn’t reply sooner!! Forgive me Craig and Simon 🙂 In my humble opinion, Ira and I did a nice class and we’re doing one again in Seattle on October 5th at the Columbia City Library (rsvp at http://www.mortgageporter.com/education). Ira is a hoot…and I mean that with great respect.

    Simon, I lender has to go through the training offered by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission and their company would need to be part of the program as well before they can offer the down payment assistance programs or teach the classes.
