Wright County residents thinking about buying a home are invited to attend a one day workshop designed to help them learn the basics of home ownership.
Wright County Community Action (WCCA) offers a first-time home buyer’s seminar (Home Stretch) which will cover a variety of topics related to the home buying process. Area lenders, real estate agents, and other housing professionals will instruct the workshop. Participants will analyze their housing needs to help them determine whether or not to buy a home, discuss how to obtain a mortgage loan, learn ways to budget and save for home ownership, and review some of the basics of home maintenance. In addition, they will learn how to choose and work with a real estate agent, a lender, and other housing professionals.
