Free First-Time Buyer Workshop in Woodbury

Now is a great time to buy your first home! Durham Executive Group and RE/MAX Results offer FREE First Time Homebuyer workshops in Woodbury.

The Woodbury real estate market is beginning to heat up.

We are seeing more listings come on the market. Prices and interest rates are still low, but so is supply. The best homes are getting snapped up quickly, and we’re starting to see more multiple offer situations. 

If you are thinking about buying your first home, now is the perfect time to start looking. But where do you start? How do you figure out how much you can afford? How do you decide on the right home? And all that paperwork! 

The process of buying a home can be intimidating to the first time buyer. That’s why the RE/MAX Results’ Durham Executive Group are bringing a FREE first time homebuyer workshop to Woodbury.  

Wednesday, March 6th at 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. 

Thursday, March 28th 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. 

All workshops will be held at the RE/MAX Results office at 604 Bielenberg Drive in Woodbury. Additional workshop dates and times for April and May will be announced at a later date.

Local real estate experts John and Becky Durham will show you the ins and outs of buying your first home, including:

  • Agent Representation - how/why to select an agent.
