More About Buying a Home

Free Classroom Workshops

Buying a house is a big project! Whether you’re thinking about your first home or trying to remember all the steps from the last time, this class is for you.

The First Time Homebuyer workshop is a free, four-hour class. Each workshop features a lender, a realtor, a home inspector and a housing advisor from NKCDC. 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 twice a month at Orinoka Civic House, 2771 Ruth Street. Spanish and English workshops are available.
