DETAILS: R.E.A.C.H. and University Area CDC will provide a free class for those interested in learning the ins and outs of buying a home.
Jim Caramello, University Area CDC director of real estate, says, “Purchasing a home is a big decision, especially for first-time homebuyers. Participants who complete this course will be better prepared for what to expect during the purchase transaction, learn about the ongoing responsibilities of owning a home and receive information on numerous financial perks, including down-payment assistance. Increasing the rate of homeownership in the University Area community is a significant component of our Neighborhood Transformation Strategy. Partnerships with organizations like R.E.A.C.H., who provide these homebuyer education classes at no cost, are a great fit for UACDC to equip our residents with the needed knowledge and support to achieve the dream of homeownership.”
