Homebuyers’ information session planned for Burnaby

February 8, 2017 by  

A home is the largest purchase most people will make, and during an upcoming Burnaby workshop, they will learn how to decide if it is the right option for them, and if so, how to make the most from it.

The Tommy Douglas Branch of the Burnaby Public Library will be hosting a money management session for homeowners. Several topics will be discussed, including managing credit, applying for a mortgage, purchasing a home ,and how to determine whether buying or renting housing is the best fit for their individual situation. Making a down payment and what lenders are looking for when determining if they will lend money will also be discussed.

According to the organizers, the goal is that by the end of the session, participants will walk away with a set of knowledge and skills that they can put to use throughout their lives. Comb binding can be utilized to create informational handouts for each of the person who takes part in an event like this. It is being offered on a free of charge basis, but anyone who is interested in taking part is asked to register ahead of time, as space is limited.

The Money Management: Homeowner Basics workshop has been planned for March 7, and anyone who wishes to register can do so by visiting the library’s website.
