2020 First Time Homebuyer Seminar Dates

****COVID-19 UPDATE: With the current global pandemic, all in person  seminars are being replaced with online live webinars until further notice. Please check back monthly for updated registration links.  ****

The Sherri Dzik Homes team ensures that our clients are educated throughout the home buying process. We have been hosting free, community seminars for three years and have helped dozens of buyers purchase their first home. Attending a seminar is a free and no-pressure way to learn about obtaining a mortgage and the full home buying process. 

The lender portion of each seminar is presented by Jane Fisher with Fairway Mortgage and the home buying portion is presented by one of our skilled agents. Learn about them in the Meet The Team section of our website.

Some of the things an attendee can expect to learn from the lender:

  * The pre-approval process;

  * The role of credit in determining eligibility and purchase power;

  * The difference between the different types of mortgages;

  * How much you really need for a down payment;

  * Down payment assistance programs;

  * And much more! 

Some of the things an attendee can expect to learn from the Realtor:

  * The home search process;

  * How an offer is made;

  * How the home inspection process works;

  * How the attorney approval process works;

  * What the timeline is to buy a home;

  * And much more!

We are now also offering a monthly webinar so you can learn about all this from your home computer.  If you can't make one of these, we are always happy to meet with you one on one and share all the same information. Every session also concludes with a Q&A opportunity so that you can always ask questions that may pertain specifically to your situation.
