Educational resources help future buyers prepare for homeownership
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 30, 2012) – Despite several years of uncertainty in the real estate market, the dream of homeownership is still alive and well. According to a recent Fannie Mae survey, 95 percent of homeowners view homeownership as a positive experience and more than 65 percent of renters aspire to own their own home.
Allen Tate Mortgage, a division of Allen Tate Company, the Carolinas’ leading real estate company, is helping potential homebuyers become successful homeowners through a new educational series, “How to be a Prepared Buyer.”
The series is targeted to individuals who are not quite ready for homeownership due to credit issues, but are ready to take steps toward achieving that goal. Through a series of free downloadable resource documents, future homeowners can learn about building credit, the importance of housing history and credit standards to obtain a mortgage. Other specialty topics include moving forward after a foreclosure.
The free documents are available on the company’s website, at http://mortgage.allentate.com/getstarted/prepared. New documents will be added regularly.
For more information on homeownership, call 1-800-210-0321 or visit www.allentate.com.
