Posted on January 19, 2010. Filed under: Kauai Foreclosure, Kauai Great Value Properties, kauai REO | Tags: , , |

We’re getting the word out about the extended first-time homebuyer’s tax credit. Come and join experts from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Title Guaranty Escrow, Hawaii Life Real Estate, and 101 Financial in two free first-time homebuyer seminars on January 26 and 28. Participants are encouraged to register online at www.kauaihome101.com or call 346-7095 as seating is limited.

The seminars, entitled Home Ownership 101, will cover topics that are important to those considering purchasing in a real estate market that appears to be getting more affordable every month. Attendees will hopefully walk away with all they need to know and learn how to take their next steps in pursuing home ownership. If this is the year you’ve dreamed of owning a new home, this seminar can help you get jumpstarted.  And best of all, it’s free. The session on January 26th will be held at the Kauai Beach Resort starting at 7 p.m. The session on January 28th will be held at the Waimea Neighborhood Center and also starts at 7 p.m. Registration for both events starts at 6:30 p.m.

The first step is to get your financial house in order. 101 Financial will show you how getting out of debt and improving your credit score are essential in preparing yourself for home ownership. Obtaining a loan is also key to home ownership; the lending industry has changed dramatically in the last year. Come and find out what’s available. Learn about the USDA Rural Housing no-money down programs and FHA loans.

It’s not too late to take advantage of government-sponsored incentives too. First-time homebuyers could be eligible for a credit up to $8,000. Longtime homeowners could be eligible for a credit of up to $6,500. There are many bank-owned properties and short sales currently on the market. View my foreclosure gallery at hawaiilife.com.
