Free Home Buyer Workshop This Saturday in Las Vegas

Housing for Nevada and Prudential Americana Group Host Free Workshop to Teach Home Buyers The Elements of Buying a Home, Including Down Payment Assistance, in Conjunction with a Full Day Halloween Party for the Kids.

Las Vegas, NV, October 17, 2009 --( The best of two worlds combines this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Centennial YMCA in Northwest Las Vegas. Parents can attend a free, full-day workshop that will teach them the ins and outs of buying a home. While the adults are learning, their children are invited to attend a Halloween party complete with a costume contest, games and arts & crafts. Housing for Nevada and partners Prudential Americana Group and Bank of America Home Loans are sponsoring both events and offering them free to the public. Registration is required.

“This is an incredible opportunity for working parents who have never before been able to attend a full day workshop because they didn’t have childcare,” said Mark Stark, CEO of Prudential Americana Group. “Now they can relax and focus on learning what they need to do in order to become a homeowner while their kids have a great time at a supervised Halloween Party.”

During the workshop speakers will discuss the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, which includes opportunities for down payment assistance as well as rehabilitation assistance. Participants will also learn about credit, shopping for a loan, the closing process and avoiding foreclosure.

“We are an enthusiastic supporter of Housing For Nevada’s efforts to educate future homebuyers in Las Vegas,” said Stark. “It can be a confusing and overwhelming process for many people. With a little education and support, homeownership becomes possible for thousands who thought they couldn’t do it and Prudential is proud to support that effort.”

To RSVP for Saturday’s Homebuyer Workshop, call Housing For Nevada at 702-270-0300. The workshop and Halloween Party will both be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Centennial YMCA on 6601 North Buffalo Drive.
