Off-Campus Life will partner with a local real estate professional to offer a First-Time Home Buyer class for anyone interested in home ownership from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 10, in the University Center Council Room. The class will be repeated June 10.

Topics of the class include:

  • Finding and using the right realtor
  • Understanding the financial aspects of home purchases
  • How to talk with a lender
  • Understanding financing, down payments and credit
