On May 15th, Corcoran sponsored a day-long home buyer seminar at The Maynard. Over 200 prospective home owners attended.

Represented at the event were M&T, Citi, Chase and Bank of America. Lawyers George Clarke and Ryan Walsh spoke about the legal aspects of home ownership. Deborah Alexandre gave advise about how to improve your credit.

Local restaurants Peaches, Bread Stuy, Saraghinos and Super Wings provided food. A live band and a sound truck from WBLS rounded out the event, which was planned by Masai Marketing.

Over the past few months of selling at The Maynard Coops, we have found that, remarkably, most of our visitors are not pre-qualified for a mortgage. Clearly without being pre-qualified, customers have only a rough idea what they can afford to purchase.

By attending homebuyer seminars, prospective homeowners will become familiar with the home buying process. And step one on this process is getting pre-qualified by a financial institution which is lending at The Maynard. Among these are M&T Bank, Citi, Chase, Bank of America and HSBC.

Once you are pre-qualified, you can submit an offer for an apartment that you are eligible for. Once the offer is accepted, and the City verifies that your income and family size are appropriate, you’re on the path towards home ownership.

Home ownership has been shown to be the most common way that families are able to enter the ranks of the middle class. Once you own your own home, you are no longer paying someone else’s mortgage. Plus you have the advantage of deducting your mortgage interest from your tax return, a deduction that renters don’t have.

And as you work hard to improve your community, your home value increases, not your rent. Get the full benefit of your hard work, become a home owner!
