CCOA announces free classes for home buyers

By: 6 August 2010 One Comment

It’s been said on more than a few occasions that buying a home is complex.

Further, it’s been said some of the complexity of purchasing a house means that a good number of people wind up in trouble.

When you think about it, the complexity and — at times — lack of understanding of what it takes to purchase a house helped lead to the emergence of the subprime lending market and the eventual demise of that same market.

Fayetteville-based Credit Counseling of Arkansas (CCOA) has spent a lot of time educating prospective home buyers. The group has announced a list of classes for homebuyers throughout the rest of the year and here’s what Bruce Castleberry, CCOA community outreach coordinator, had to say about that:

It’s a buyer’s market for those interested in purchasing a home. But since most of us don’t buy a lot of homes in our lifetimes, the process remains mysterious. Consumers have responded by seeking more information, and CCOA has seen some of its largest turnouts ever for our free Homebuyer Education classes this year.

In response, we’ve scheduled all of our remaining classes through 2010 in advance to meet that demand, and trying new locations. We’re also working to develop Spanish-language presentations to that growing segment of our population.

Attached is our schedule of free courses. Thanks again for your support of the community and CCOA.
