Home of Your Own: How to Buy a Home for the First Time | March 23

About This Event

Buying a home is often one of the biggest goals of our lifetime and can feel totally daunting and scary. We’re here to help make it feel less scary :) In this workshop, Brunch & Budget will walk you through all the financial, emotional, and mental things you need to think about as you prepare to buy your first home, all the way through the closing process and maintaining one.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to decide how homeownership fits into your recipe for wealth and the next steps to take you there!

We’ll discuss:

  • Having the right credit score

  • Calculating debt to income ratios

  • Documents you need to apply for a mortgage

  • Qualifying for a mortgage as a freelancer

  • Breaking down upfront costs
