First-Time Buyer in Brooklyn? Learn From Experts at Brownstoner’s Home Events Series


    Buying a home can be a frustrating mystery to solve. Why is your offer rejected over someone else’s? Can you ever afford to buy in a neighborhood you like? What is the difference between a co-op and a condo? We can help you solve the puzzle at the What First Time Buyers Need to Know event, part of a series of Brownstoner Home Events.

    At the April 30 event at the Brooklyn Historical Society, curious buyers will hear directly from experts about what neighborhoods offer the best value for first-time buyers, financing options and even how to spruce up your new home on a budget.

    Should you lock in your interest rate? What about applying for a home equity line of credit? Brian Scott Cohen, Sales Manager at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, will clarify the world of mortgages.
