James City County offers free class for first-time homebuyers

Are you thinking about buying a home, but not sure where to start, especially in challenging economic times? James City County’s free First-time Homebuyer Class can help.

In one day of training, you’ll learn the entire home buying process from start to finish, and how to stay on track as a responsible homeowner.

The James City County Office of Housing and Community Development will hold a First-time Homebuyer class Tuesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 26 from 6-9 p.m. at the Parks and Recreation Administration Building, 5300 Palmer Ln., Suite 1A.

Topics covered include personal finances, credit and credit scoring, qualifying and applying for a loan, choosing the right home and what happens at a loan closing.
