Our first-time buyer party on the patio took place on a lovely evening filled with food, wine, conversation, and helpful first-time home-buyer information.
The Happy Hour featured three experts with topics specifically geared towards first-time home-buyers. The first guest up, Mitchell Smith from Buttonwood Financial, opened with insights into managing cash flow and discussed how being a home-owner affects overall financial health. Who wouldn’t want to save thousands in taxes?!
Next our own Nicole Lonergan talked about the importance of having an experienced Real Estate Agent specifically when operating in a fast-selling market with limited inventory like we are experiencing now!
Mortgage expert, Mike O’Neill finished up the official part of the presentation by building on Nicole’s comments about a tight market and explaining how prequalifying for a loan can make the difference between getting the home of your dreams and having to start searching again from scratch. After the official presentations there was time planned to mingle, ask questions, and talk to others in varying stages of the home-buying process.
As one guest commented afterward, “This was the perfect opportunity and environment to ask the questions I was embarrassed to ask otherwise. It gave me a place to start, and pointed me in the right direction.” The party was such a hit that we are going to continue the first-time home-buyer sessions with another one in June! More details to come-stay tuned!
