Buyer Workshop Information

  1. 1. For Buyers Free Buyer Workshops Avoid Making Serious Home Buying Mistakes... Most resale home buyers move into their new houses or condos about 60 to 90 days after their offer has been accepted. Before you start actually looking for the home that you want to buy, you should get educated about the process, learn how to "hire" a Buyer Agent, get a full pre-approval for a mortgage... and then start actually viewing potential houses, condominiums or new construction to buy! Our Next Indianapolis Buyer Workshops Start at: 9:25 am Sharp Saturday, January 9th 6:15 Sharp Thursday January 21st 90 minutes later, walk out feeling confident, knowing exactly how to begin your home search and having a clear vision of how the entire home buying process comes together. You'll be provided with handy fill-in forms and charts to guide you through a smooth, hassle-free home-buying process.
