Have you ever thought about buying a home?
Whether you are considering a search this spring or not planning to look for years, this informational session will help you understand the basics of buying a home in the Greater Hartford area. It will be more of a conversation than a lecture, and questions will be strongly encouraged.
We will be leading the HYPE Homebuyer Seminar on Monday, April 9th, 2012 at 6:00pm. It will be held at the MetroHartford Alliance Board Room at 31 Pratt Street in Downtown Hartford. Registration is required, and there is a modest fee, between $5 and $10 depending on when you register. Light refreshments will be provided.
Our goal is to focus on the home buying process. We’ll start with the big picture, but will also get into specific observations and recommendations, and take questions throughout. We’re open to talking about whatever people are interested in hearing, and expect to touch on issues like:
– What critical steps do I need to take in order to prepare for a purchase?
– Who am I likely to work with during a purchase?
– What is a buyer’s agent?
– Are some real estate websites better than others?
– What kinds of mortgage financing and closing cost assistance is available?
– How are condos different than single-family houses?
For those who are not familiar with Hartford Young Professionals & Entrepreneurs (HYPE), it is a large organization based in Downtown Hartford that helps connect young professionals in the region. HYPE puts on multiple events each month, on a huge variety of topics; visit the website for more information. The next scheduled HYPE event is the monthly “Get HYPEd” happy hour on Wednesday, April 4th from 5:30 to 8:30 at Zula at 901 Main Street, Hartford. There is no registration or cost for Get HYPEd – just show up with your friends and meet other interesting people.
But back to the Homebuying event … please spread the word to friends, family, co-workers and neighbors. We’ve done this sort of thing before with HYPE. Each time it’s been a lot of fun and we’ve gotten positive feedback that it’s helpful to those who attend.
Monday, April 9th from 6:00 to 8:30 at the MetroHartford Alliance Board Room at 31 Pratt Street in Hartford. Here is the link to register. Thanks – hope to see you there!
