WENATCHEE — So how do you really get into a home of your own?

A team of home industry experts will give a free, five-hour workshop Saturday to help first-time home buyers navigate the world of real estate and home ownership.

First-time Home Buyers’ Seminar,” a workshop sponsored by the state Housing Finance Commission, will be held from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Chelan County PUD Auditorium, 327 N. Wenatchee Ave.

The program includes presentations by Francie Poole, a real estate loan officer; Jamie Wallace, a local real estate agent; Chip Roberson, a home inspector; and Jim Olson, a mortgage expert with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Topics will include steps in the home-buying process, how to budget for mortgages, working with a real estate agent, home inspections and down payment assistance programs for first-time buyers.

Lunch is provided during the workshop. Pre-registration is advised by calling 664-5311 or emailing francie.poole@peoplesbank-wa.com.
