Dear LAFACE Family,

As a follow-up to our recently held Homeownership Basics Friday Power Lunch Training, we want to share with you some wonderful resource for homebuyers!

 

Our LAFACE President recently participated in the New Economics for Women’s Home Ownership Workshop, and highly recommends the workshop for anyone even remotely considering becoming a homeowner. Whether you’re ready to buy tomorrow, or planning to in the future, it’s a great class to take NOW. Please take advantage of this valuable resource, and feel free to share with others who may be interested.

 

We hope that you find this information valuable, and that it empowers you towards your own home ownership goals.

 

Yours in service,

LAFACE Board Officers
