Topics For Buyers

You’re Invited! Free ‘$0 Down in DC / MD’ Buying Workshops in March


Saturday-Workshop-2

January and February have been very busy months for DC first time home buyers. Lower than expected 30 year mortgage rates (3.7% interest rates currently!) has created urgency in the real estate market as prepared home and condo buyers take advantage.

UrbanLand Company offers twice weekly free Home Buyer Workshops for local home shoppers who want to understand and navigate the pathway to ownership in the DC/MD/ marketplace.  Tuesday nights at 5:30pm is our After-Work Edition Workshop, with a fast-format introduction to opportunities and challenges facing first time buyers shopping in the $250,000 – $500,000 price range. Saturday mornings at 10am is our popular $0 Down Home Buyer Workshop series. Location on both sessions weekly is 913 Florida Avenue, NW.

“We focus in on core issues that can be obstacles for new buyers.  The focus on the $250,000 – $500,000 price range gives attendees a very clear picture of the broad part of the market as a whole. If you’re looking at below $300,000 (or above $500,000), just let us know and ask a question during the session! We have heavy participation from our audience and topics often change to match who is in room,” commented Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker of UrbanLand Company.

Our Workshops produce happy and successful home buyers! In 2015, our Workshop attendees who followed our guidance bought 46 homes and condos totaling $13.5 million in value in DC and Maryland. A high % of these transactions used DC’s $0 Down program and other low down payment programs.

Topics include:

  • Down payment options available (from traditional 20% down loans to low down payment to 100% financing programs)
  • Understanding how down payments & loan options affect monthly mortgage payment amounts
  • Mortgage Pre-Qualification + understanding your true purchasing power & affordability
  • How to shop smart in the marketplace (agent-directed search + using our mobile app)
  • Finding top neighborhood values & spots for future appreciation
  • Buying new construction vs. resale vs. investment properties
  • What to expect from your real estate agent

Workshops are held at our offices at 913 Florida Avenue, NW. Attendance is always free.  “Our guidance and advice is free of charge. We are real estate agents – our time and expertise is available to you free of charge until you actually successfully buy a home or condo! Come on by & bring a friend!”
