Bloomfield, Mich.-based home builder Centex announced it will host its first ever webinars -- named “Open the Door to Homeownership: A Free Webinar Series Featuring Ilyce Glink” -- Oct. 6 and 27 aimed at educating first-time home buyers.
Glink is an award winning columnist, television reporter and radio talk show host who delivers tips and tricks on personal finance and real estate, along with general consumer advice.
The first webinar on Oct. 6 will be titled “Rent Vs. Buy” and will discuss the benefits of homeownership. Participants will obtain information to find out if they are ready to purchase a home, the company said.
The second webinar on Oct. 27 will be “New vs. Resale.” Glink will discuss the issues related to short sale and forclosures and how home buyers can take advantage of historically low interest rates, incentives and pricing from new home builders.
“Through these webinars, Centex is empowering its home buyers to make better choices and providing them a solid foundation that gives them a level of comfort and confidence as they take the step into homeownership,” said Deborah Wahl Meyer, senior VP and chief marketing officer for Centex.
