Homebuyer Workshop

Red River Bank will host a 1st Time Homebuyers Training Session at the Clista A. Calhoun Center from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM

This training will be a key step in qualifying them for a certificate they can use to obtain a home buying grant through agencies such as USDA, Louisiana Housing Corporation and others.  Those in attendance will also get scheduled for some one-on-one counseling with a certified HUD approved counselor.  One-on-one counseling provides them an opportunity to privately go over their finances to see where they stand and if needed they will get advice and assistance to help them resolve their particular problem.  In the end they will have a better opportunity of getting a quality mortgage.  This training will also benefit homeowners who may want to know what to do if they find themselves in financial trouble and could be in jeopardy of losing their home .  We want to make sure prospective homebuyers know what financial assistance is available, how to budget, the responsibility of owning a home, how to select a real estate agent, what is the difference between an appraisal and a home inspection and more.  Facilitators for this training session will be Mr. Curtis Wright, Sr., Realtor with Curtropolis Realty Services, Inc. (Bossier City, LA) and Ms. Judy Madison, Assistant Vice President of Red River Bank (Shreveport, LA).
