Webinar Recording: Homeownership – Making the American Dream Possible

Webinar presented on February 24, 2017

Homeownership is the American dream, but it’s also the largest financial transaction of most people’s lives.  It’s important to get it right. It can be difficult to navigate through the process and to be certain that the house, mortgage products, and services selected are the right ones. Making the right choices early on can help to avoid housing concerns in the event of a financial setback.

Whether you are a prospective homeowner or work with one learn about the pros and cons of homeownership, how to prepare financially for a home, the steps to finding and financing a home, and what first-time homebuyer resources are available.
