PCHA has partnered with the Community Service Foundation to offer free First Time Homebuyer seminars at the Pinellas County Housing Authority’s Central Office, located at 11479 Ulmerton Road in Largo. The two-part workshop series will be held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, and from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Tuesday, August 13, 2013.
By participating in the First Time Homebuyer seminars, participants will learn about the available programs that can assist with down payments and closing costs, as well as the role of realtors and how they can provide guidance to the homebuyer.
These workshops will teach participants ways to:
• understand the process of pre-qualifying,
• locate the best mortgage product and qualify for a mortgage,
• maintain a home,
• preserve property values, and
• avoid foreclosure
