Topics range from selecting a realtor to getting inspections. NKCDC housing advisors present pre-purchase and post-purchase information. We answer all questions! 

Workshops are offered several times a month by Zoom. Download the app on your laptop, tablet or phone. Event login information will be sent to your email 10 minutes before the online workshop begins.
