ADDRESS: Link will be sent to registered guests
You're invited and, hopefully, after this event, you'll be able to confidently invite yourself to the table of homeownership and tap into the power of all the benefits that come along with it.
Whether you are at the research stage, or the pre-approval stage, our aim with this virtual event is to ensure you are armed with the information you need to establish your own homebuying timeline.
Good news! Her Agenda is partnering with Bank of America for a conversation around everything you need to know when it comes to buying a home of your own.
Join us for a virtual discussion with experts from personal finance, real estate and more, along with a workshop to familiarize you with the home buying process. We’ll tackle a variety of essential topics, such as gauging your readiness, preparing finances, and generating long-term personal wealth through homeownership.
You’ll also hear about Bank of America’s commitment to potential homeowners. Through its Community Homeownership Commitment, homebuyers may be eligible for up to $17,500 in down payment and closing cost help – no repayment necessary – along with tools like their First-Time Homebuyer Online Edu-Series, an easy-to-understand roadmap for buying a home.
At Her Agenda, we believe in and encourage a wholistic approach to success, and achieving goals. This includes not only what happens at work, but creating a life that fuels you and inspires you all around from your health to your home. We're excited to go on this journey with you.
The first 100 registered guests will receive a special gift from Her Agenda.
