Attendees Will Receive Valuable Information about Buying and Owning a Home
Yazoo City, MS – July 17, 2009 – (RealEstateRama) — The Mississippi Home Corporation (MHC) will hold a free Homebuyer Fair on July 28, 2009 at the B.S. Ricks Memorial Library, 310 North Main Street, in Yazoo City, MS from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. The fair will be hosted by MHC, Suttlar Real Estate Company, the Esther Steward Buford Foundation, Fidelity First Mortgage, and USDA/Rural Development. Representatives of the host organizations will answer questions and provide valuable information about affordable purchasing programs, credit scores, and the home buying process in general.
“According to the National Association of Realtors, over 80 percent of Americans still believe buying a home is a good financial decision,” observed Lynette M. Suttlar, Broker/Owner of Suttlar & Suttlar Real Estate, one of the hosts of the homebuyer fair. The event “is going to motivate people to start thinking about owning a home and for those that are on the fence, it will help them to make the decision to get in the real estate market as a homeowner or an investor. We believe stabilizing neighborhoods is very important at this time,” Suttlar said.
Homebuyer fairs provide valuable information about the home buying process from beginning to end according to Dr. Ben Mokry, Senior Vice President of MHC: “In addition to information about specific programs to help families looking to purchase a home, these events inform potential buyers of the responsibilities and benefits of owning their own home.” It’s important to have a good understanding of the requirements of homeownership. “Buying a home is a process, and we help equip families with the information they need to make good decisions while avoiding the pitfalls along the way,” Mokry added.
