Obsessively searching sales listings for the perfect apartment (that you can afford)? Fantasize about remodeling your own brownstone? Or just wish your monthly rent was going toward a mortgage instead of your landlord? Our Buying Into Brooklyn event on Monday, June 2 will give you a crash course on everything you need to know about buying a home.
From 7:30-9:30pm at Brooklyn Brewery, you’ll hear from four experts in the field–Realty Collective founder Victoria Hagman and Realty Collective agent Tina Fallon; real estate attorney and partner Michael Moshan of Gold Scollar Moshan, PLLC, and private mortgage banker Janet Younkman of Wells Fargo–who will explain what it takes to find the right home, make the right offer, get into contract, secure the right financing, and close, all without having a nervous breakdown.
Here’s what you’ll learn over Brooklyn beers and light bites from Sahadi’s:
-Who protects you and helps you get the best deal
-How to position yourself as a bonafide buyer in a hot market
-The importance of finding the right lender
-What to do when you have bad or less than stellar credit
-The steps to obtaining a pre-approval and mortgage
-The offer/acceptance process
-The difference between a condo vs. co-op (and how to pass a co-op board)
