LRRC and STEPS to Sponsor a Free Homebuyer Program

Posted on April 20, 2014 By

The LLRC (Lakewood Resource and Referral Center) and STEPS (Solution to End Poverty Soon) are sponsoring a free program for first-time Ocean County homebuyers Sunday, April 27, 2014, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Main Auditorium of the Lakewood Municipal Building, 231 Third Street, Lakewood, NJ 08701.

Representatives with expertise in the housing market will discuss many topics related to the home-buying process, with a special emphasis on building, improving and maintaining credit. Participants will have the opportunity to hear about the current and upcoming affordable housing opportunities in Ocean County. Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak individually to vendors, and to LRRC and STEPS representatives.

Sarah Rothenberg, the director of the LLRC said, “The LRRC and STEPS are sponsoring this program because we recognize that first-time and all homebuyers need the understanding and skills to make appropriate and educated decisions during the home buying process.”

LRRC provides homeownership seminars and counseling that is required by many lenders to enable clients to take advantage of first-time homebuyer mortgage products. The seminars are given once a week by NW (Neighborhood Works) certified housing counselors at the LRRC. An LRRC representative will be available during the Sunday, April 27 program to give guests the opportunity to schedule a seminar at a date convenient for them. Participants receive a certificate upon completion.

Rothenberg said, “We look forward to greeting you personally and helping you become an educated, responsible and happy homeowner! Remember, we can only build our communities, our towns and our state with strong neighborhoods that are created by safe and secure homeownership and family stability!”
