Now may be the perfect time to buy a home, and if you’re in the market for the first time, the Betty Warmack Branch of the Grand Prairie Public Library has a free class that could make the process easier for you.
The homebuyer education class, being held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday November 17 and Saturday December 15, will provide attendees and potential first-time-home-buyers useful financial information, including how to have your credit in good shape, as well as general information to help guide you through the often complicated home buying process.
With the official stamp of approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the class will also give attendees a Homebuyer Certificate, which will help them qualify for down payment assistance programs and first-time home buyer programs offered by the City of Grand Prairie.
Pre-registration is necessary for the class, and is available online, or by calling 972-237-8129. Since the class is free, you’ve got nothing to lose (except a few hours), and potentially a lot to gain--knowledge is power, and if that knowledge helps you get a better deal on your first house, what could be better?
The Betty Warmack Branch Library is located at 760 Bardin Rd.
