The City of San Leandro is sponsoring a free homebuyer education seminar, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3 at San Leandro’s City Hall, 835 14th St.
The recent elimination of redevelopment agencies in California has taken a toll on home ownership programs in the Bay Area. In spite of funding reductions, the San Leandro is continuing to provide assistance to first time homebuyers.
Available services include free homebuyer education and counseling, down payment assistance programs from State or other public agencies and accessing below market rate homes.
The ability to combine these resources and services can provide a first time homebuyer an important edge to enter into the highly complex housing market.
Topics covered at the seminar will include preparing to become a homeowner; the process of purchasing and financing a home; programs, resources, and services available to assist first time homebuyers; and helpful purchase strategies for buying in today’s market.
A reservation is required and can be made at www.myhomegateway.com. For more information about the seminar, call (888) 572-1222 x102.
