2012 UPDATE: Our next series of home buyer workshops starts Wednesday, February 15th. Click here for info.

Are you planning to buy or sell your home this spring? The real estate market has changed considerably. There are significant opportunities, and there are risks. Know your options! We have answers to questions like: What’s an “REO”? What’s a “short sale”? How do foreclosures affect market values?

We’ve scheduled a series of home buyer seminars around the Seattle and Bellevue area. We are co-hosting these events with Cobalt Mortgage. We’ll have complimentary refreshments, and we’ll discuss market conditions, mortgages, and paying real estate agent commissions versus paying a flat fee.

Is This a Seminar for First Time Home Buyers? Who Should Attend?

The seminar is for anyone interested in learning more about buying or selling a home in today’s market including first time home buyers, repeat buyers, and sellers.

Next Class:  July 20th Downtown at the WaLaw Realty Offices
