The best thing that a first time home buyer can do is to attend a free Home Buyer Seminar, which will walk the potential homeowner through the various stages of the homebuying process!
- Mortgage Loan Officer discussing Pre-Approval as well as the loan process
- Realtor discussing selecting the perfect home as well as ensuring you negotiate the best price
- Insurance agent to discuss homeowners insurance as well as what different types of coverage mean
- Settlement/Title Agent to explain the title work, liens, judgements, and the closing/settlement process.
There are (4) of these seminars in Pittsburgh during the month of April, so I would highly encourage checking one out!
There are some listed on the Tribune Review's Website: http://calendar.triblive.com/search?swhat=home+buyer+seminar
The seminars hosted at Panera Bread will include all of the speakers mentioned above. Thanks!
