The James City County Office of Housing and Community Development will hold a first-time homebuyer class on Tuesday, Sep. 15 and Thursday, Sept. 17 from 6-9 p.m. at the Law Enforcement Center Community Room, 4600 Opportunity Way.
Topics covered include personal finances, credit and credit scoring, qualifying and applying for a loan, choosing the right home, the need for a home inspection and what happens at a loan closing. Anyone who is currently purchasing a home or is considering a purchase in the future will benefit from this class.
For some applicants, the mortgage company requires them to complete a home buyers class prior to loan approval. Participants who attend both sessions will receive a certificate of completion.
Space is limited and registration closes Monday, Sept. 14. Register online at vhda.com. For more information about the First-time Homebuyer Program, visit the website or call 757-259-5340.
