Home Ownership Workshop a Great Success!

Freezing temperatures did not discourage over 30 interested homebuyers, primarily military veterans, who attended the Cuyahoga Land Bank’s free Homebuyer’s Workshop on Saturday January 18th.  The event highlighted the Land Bank’s new HomeFront Veteran Homeownership Program (‘HomeFront’) and provided a wealth of information on the home buying process.veterans_workshop
The workshop was held in partnership with Howard Hanna Real Estate and Mortgage Services at Howard Hanna downtown Cleveland offices located at 800 W. St. Clair Avenue.  Cuyahoga Land Bank staff Dennis Roberts and Vatreisha Nyemba excellently presented information about the Land Bank and the HomeFront program, informing and enlightening workshop participants about the numerous functions and community impacts of the Land Bank.  Workshop participants were also able to receive answers to questions and converse with Land Bank staff.
Additionally, Howard Hanna Finance Managers Angela Spicer and Mike Pusateri took workshop participants step-by-step through the process of purchasing a home; from securing financing to the final close.   Information about the various programs Howard Hanna has for Graduates, Renters and First Time Buyers was also shareddennis_presents.
At the close of the event, workshop participants expressed appreciation for the wealth of information provided.  Many are looking forward to working with the Cuyahoga Land Bank and Howard Hanna as part of the HomeFront program. Gus Frangos, President and General Counsel of the Cuyahoga Land Bank said, “Offering the HomeFront program for veterans in conjunction with the Howard Hanna Mortgage Services programs provides a great avenue through which our mission and the Howard Hanna Real Estate mission will be further realized.” Based on the interest expressed during this event, discussions are underway to make the event a quarterly offering.
