How to Become an Informed First-Time Home Buyer

Purchasing a home for the first time is an exciting and sometimes challenging process. RTN is a great resource to help you navigate one of the most important financial decisions you will make.

Along with offering new financing programs for first-time home buyers, we are holding several first-time home buyers (FTHB) seminars. These include two-hour first-time home buying seminars — including one in Spanish — and a ten-hour FTHB series in partnership with Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance (MAHA).

Learn from the experts what to expect during the process of looking for and financing your first home. Specific topics include how to research a new home, the importance of good credit in financing a home and the types of financing programs available for first-time home buyers.

Those who attend a two-hour seminar and/or complete the ten-hour course will receive a $250 closing cost credit when taking an RTN mortgage.
