If you are a young professional just starting your career, you may think that you are far away from the time that you can afford to buy your own home.  Renting may seem like the best option -- But as you pay rent every month, you are building income for someone else, not equity for yourself.

Attend this program, aimed at young professionals under the age of 40, and hear from an expert real estate agent, mortgage loan originator, and insurance consultant who will discuss the following:

  • Why should a buyer have a realtor
  • The first two weeks are crucial
  • Why is it important to be pre-qualified
  • How does your credit score affect your mortgage options
  • What is the application process for obtaining a mortgage
  • What are the risks that may limit who can insure you
  • Insurance-related things to discuss when buying a home
  • Why choose a local insurance agent vs. an online option

Come to this V.Y.B.E. program -- network with area young professionals from other chambers -- and learn about the ins and outs of buying a home.


  • Attend 4 Consecutive Monthly V.Y.B.E. Events and the 5th one is FREE!
