SmartStart First Time Homebuyer Education Workshop
Saturday, July 13, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
The Urban League of Greater Atlanta’s Housing and Community Development Program is an approved counseling agency of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program provides several types of housing counseling services to the general public. Counseling sessions focus on financial preparedness and mortgage readiness, and other areas applicable to obtaining, and maintaining safe homeownership. Clients are invited to attend a monthly first-time homebuyer’s education workshop, conducted by the certified housing counselor of the Urban League of Greater Atlanta’s housing department.
The objectives of the program are to expand and increase homeownership opportunities for families and individuals, improve access to affordable housing, and preserve homeownership through education and empowerment of homeowners. Our housing counselors provide guidance and information to help families and individuals improve their housing conditions and meet the responsibilities of tenancy and homeownership. We assist in helping prospective homebuyers avoid inflated appraisals, unreasonably high interest rates, unaffordable repayment terms, and other conditions that can result in a loss of equity, increased debt, default, and eventually foreclosure.
Take advantage of the education and qualify for housing and financial assistance to buy any home of your choice.
Breakfast and Lunch will be served at the worskop. Parking is free.
