NeighborWorks Southern Mass. will offer a two-part workshop for first-time homebuyers, to be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday July 5 and Thursday July 7 at the Winter Gardens apartment complex (lower level community room), located at 45 Winter St. in Quincy.
The workshop will give participants an opportunity to meet and hear from real estate brokers, insurance agents, attorneys and loan originators. Attendees also will have an opportunity to learn about the South Shore Home Consortium’s down payment assistance programs, which may provide qualified buyers with up to 9 percent of the purchase price toward their down payment and up to an additional 1 percent toward closing costs on homes purchased in Quincy, Braintree, Weymouth, Holbrook or Milton. Workshop participants will also be able to speak to a lender about different mortgage options.
The registration fee for the workshops is $20 per person. To register and pay online, visit www.nwsoma.org(link is external) or call (617) 770-2227 x34 for more information.
