Aug. 27 ‘Keys To Homeownership’ Workshop

Wellington’s Community Services Department will host a “Keys to Homeownership” workshop on Saturday, Aug. 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to educate residents looking to purchase their first home.

Homeownership is often described as the “American Dream.” Unfortunately, for many residents, this dream is just that, a dream. Lack of knowledge is often the biggest barrier to homeownership. Through its partnership with the Palm Beach County Affordable Housing Collaborative, Wellington will bring together representatives from each area of the homebuying process. Participants will learn the importance of credit, the mortgage experience, the purchase process, downpayment assistance, homebuyer subsidy programs and working with a Realtor.

The “Keys to Homeownership” workshop will take place at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.). Breakfast and lunch will be served, followed by a TV raffle. To RSVP, call the Community Services Department at (561) 791-4796. Seating is limited.
