First Time Home Buying Classes Chicago

Good morning, I am K.B the Broker and I want to talk to you today about our first time home buying class, where it is, how long it takes, what it covers, how often we do it and how you can sign up to be a part of it and learn more about first time home. I'm going to help you whether you've if bought homes before or if this is your first time and also how you can sign up for our home buyer's class. Someone told me that I need to smile more so I'm going to be smiling a little bit more. I'm a real estate broker in Chicago. I worked in Chicago and surrounding suburbs. So if you live anywhere in Illinois and you're interested in purchasing a home, I can definitely help you.

I work with Worth Clark Realty and I look forward to being your real estate broker that helps you get into your first home. I have a really, really good team of people. I have two guys that own loan companies. I have a person that does credit repair. I have inspectors, I have appraisers. I really have a whole team already set in place to help you in your home buying process. The great thing about working with me is you'll have everything in one. I have a one stop shop team already put together for you and your home buying needs. So again, we're going to be talking about the first time home buying classes. The classes normally last for about an hour and a half. Max Versus NACA that will have you sitting in the class for like maybe four hours!!!


It's a workshop, seminar, home buying class, whichever suits you!! It's basically a class that you come to for free and you sit down, have a bite to eat if you want, and I'll get up and I'll talk about home ownership and the steps to getting into your home. The things that you need to do, the paperwork that you're going to have to bring, the credit score that you're going to need, how to get preapproved, things like that. The steps, the people that you're going to have to deal with. That's basically what I'm going to talk about. It's gonna be a very, very easy and a short process, it will be long winded. We're not going to have you held hostage for four and five hours like NACA, we will just hold you for about an hour, hour and a half Max, and we'll let you go so you don't have to worry about spending a whole half of a day somewhere trying to find out how to buy a home. So that's that.


Where is the class K.B. you say?? Well, I'm happy that you asked. It's at Leona's at 9156 S. Stony Island. That's on the south side of Chicago in a decent area, the place has Free Parking. Again, this class is free!! You don't have to pay a dime to get in. You don't have to pay a dime to park. All you have to do is get in your car, drive to 9156 S. Stony Island at Leona's Italian restaurant. What time does it start? We normally get started around 7:00pm to like maybe 8:30 or at the latest 9:00pm. You'll be out of there probably around 8:00, 8:30 Max, but you have all the information that you need to get the process started.

You'll have my contact information. Once you come to the seminar, you'll have everything that you need. You will actually be able to set up a meeting with me one on one to consult so we can get preapproved. We'll figure out where you want to live in, We'll get all your paperwork together and from there we'll go ahead and get you preapproval!! We can start looking at houses right away. If you're not ready to start looking at houses, meaning that if your credit is not up to par, will actually put you in a credit program, if that's what you choose to do, we will put you in a credit program so they can start working on your credit with our Guy James, he's been doing credit for like 30 years. I will put you in a situation with him where you can start working on your credit and in probably about three months after you saw working with him, you will be able to qualify for your home.


Our program is set up for you to visit the first time home buyers class, we give valuable information, we exchanged information, we set up a one on one consultations to see where you're at and see if you're ready to buy right now and if you are, you get preapproved. We can start looking at houses like the following day, so that's how fast it is. That's how fast the process is. We normally have classes on every 2nd Thursdays of the month. RSVP at this link

You need to go to that link and you need to RSVP because we like to have a idea of how many visitors we are going to have and there has been times when people couldn't be seated because they didn't RSVP so be sure to Just Do It.


Sometimes I have other people with me. I might have Glen Marino with me from First Centennial Mortgage. I might have Glen Crowner with me from Loan Depot. I might have my real estate attorney with me that day speaking about the process that he does. I might have a couple of inspectors with me, inspectors that you will need to do your home inspection when you get your house because it is very important to get an inspection before you purchase your home. You really don't have to. But sometimes it's a really good idea to just get it because something might really be wrong with the house like termites and you being cheap and not wanting to spend that $300 or $400 for that inspection. It could really, really save you tens and thousands of dollars. So the inspectors are really, really important. So I, I'm, most of the time I have someone there with me on the panel speaking, talking about how they help in the home buying process and talking about their field and what they actually bring to the table and what they actually do. All of these people are needed when you're buying you home, the Realtor, which is me!! the loan officer, the inspector, the appraiser, the real estate attorney, all of those people play apart.


So it's really, really important for me to have those other people there so they can tell you what they do, the, the fees that they charge, how much, how much it costs, how they work, how to get in contact with them. You can exchange information with those guys and just get everything set up and get the ball rolling. So every second Thursday at Leona's restaurant at 9156 S. Stony island. Don't just show up.
