Consolidated Credit Hosts the 2018 Florida Homebuying Fair

Helping Florida homebuyers assemble the right team to achieve homeownership.

Buying a home is a big step, but even if you’ve gone through the process before, it can be intimidating. Stress levels can be high as you search for the perfect property, compete to have the best offer and then go through mortgage underwriting. Those stress levels are even higher if you’re a first-time homebuyer who is learning as you go.

It’s with that in mind that Consolidated Credit established the Florida Homebuying Fair. This free event allows potential homebuyers to meet with the professionals they need at each step of the homebuying process:

  • Realtors®
  • Mortgage lenders
  • Appraisers
  • Title Companies
  • Fannie Mae

This way, homebuyers can better understand how to buy a home and assemble a team to help achieve that goal.

Not sure where to start? Connect with a HUD-approved coach!

For first-time homebuyers, especially, it’s hard to know what to expect when you buy a home. Steps like contacting a title company, getting appraisals, putting down earnest money and establishing escrow are all unique to buying a home. So, even if you’ve used other types of financing, you still may not fully understand what you’re in for.

At the Florida homebuying fair, you can connect with HUD-approved housing counselors for one-on-one coaching. They can help you:

  1. Understand the homebuying process step by step
  2. Explain mortgage underwriting
  3. Customize a plan to make sure you are mortgage-ready
  4. Find down payment and closing cost assistance, where it’s available

This demystifies the whole process and takes some of the uncertainty out of mortgage approval. That way, you can take action with confidence, supported by the team you connected with at the fair. Housing counselors are available in English, Spanish and Creole. Counselors can also offer assistance for military Service Members and Veterans using VA loans.

$50 gift card giveaways every half hour

To give you a little added incentive to stop by, Consolidated Credit is also giving away a $50 Publix gift card every half hour. You just complete the entry form, turn it in and then wait for the drawing every half hour. Drawings start at 10:30.
