First-time home buyers seminar coming in April
With so many diverse factors to take into consideration when buying a new home, particularly in the Vancouver region, it is no surprise first-time home buyers need a little help de-mystifying the process.
All the key questions will be covered by a panel of experts at the 18th annual seminar for first-time home buyers, presented by the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) on Tuesday, April 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Bell Performing Arts Centre, 6250 144 St., Surrey.
Admission to the popular seminar is free.
Speakers are Robyn Adamache, senior market analyst, Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp.; Wendy Acheson, VP and registrar, Homeowner Protection Office, branch of BC Housing; Narrinder Dhanoya-Bhangu, vice president, Pacific region, Genworth Financial Canada; Inde Sumal, vice-president of residential mortgages, BC region, RBC Royal Bank; Eugen Klein, president, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver; Tom Reeves, assistant vice-president, National Home Warranty; and Aaron Lightman, associate, Farris & Company LLP. Seminar moderator is Shayne Ramsay, chief executive officer of BC Housing.
Pre-registration is required. Register online at www.gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Although the seminar is free, attendees are asked to bring a food item for the Surrey Food Bank.
