Workshop to offer tips, information for homebuyers

Local residents looking to jump back into the residential real estate market can get information and advice at the Henrico Homebuyer Workshop, set for 8-10 a.m. Saturday, May 21 at the Henrico Training Center, 7701 E. Parham Road. Presented by Henrico County and the Richmond Association of Realtors, the workshop is free and open to the public.  

Topics include what to do — and what not to do — when purchasing a home; what to expect from short sales and foreclosures; and lender information such as requirements, changes and potential stumbling blocks for obtaining a loan in the current economy. The workshop also will feature a panel discussion led by local real estate and banking experts. Representatives from Henrico’s Finance and Community Revitalization departments will be on hand as well.

In addition, the Henrico Homebuyer Workshop will provide a virtual tour of the county’s diverse residential markets and will offer information about county efforts designed to help homebuyers and homeowners, such as the Reinvest program, the down payment assistance program and the Homeowner’s Enhancement Guide.

Advance registration is not required. Call 501-5346 for more information.
