Dear Ladi Acv2:

I would recommend that you have a personal one on one meeting with a mortgage banker and then a real estate agent. Why wait for a seminar when you could have someone help you on a personal level right now? This way you can set it up at your convenience, get all your questions answered and the icing on the cake it that it is FREE!

If I can be of further assistance, please contact me direct. Good luck!

You'll find a bunch. Seminars are often a brief and general presentations of the home buying process. Most have a Realtor and Loan Officer talking about what they do and pretty much give you a general idea of the mere basics.

I myself do homebuyer seminars, and it's never as good for you the buyer, as meeting with a Loan Officer one-on-one. There is so many different scenarios and so many aspects to the home buying process. It's best to have a Loan Officer who can not only explain all there is to know about financing your home, about what he/she is seeing out there in the market today, answer the general questions you'd see in a seminar, etc. but to be able to review your credit along with all your documentation and be able to give you a personalized analysis of your specific situation, there is just much more value in that.

It's one thing to ask questions in a seminar, but another to be able to have a long and detailed discussion about your concerns, options, questions, etc. you want to be able to fully understand what's out there for homebuyers to take full advantage of. Trust me, a one-on-one session is simply better.

I have offices in Brooklyn available for us to meet if you'd like to go over this in person. I can give you information on downpayment assistance programs that might or might KOT work for you and go over pretty much anything and everything about purchasing your home. I guarantee you that by the time you leave you'll feel like you graduated home buying college!
