February 27, 2017 Gonzales, TX – The Lloyd Barnes Real Estate Team and SouthStar Bank, are pleased to announce that they are hosting a free seminar for first-time home buyers on Thursday, March 9, at SouthStar Bank 1609 N. Sarah Dewitt Drive, from 5:30-7:00pm.

With high rental rates and the housing inventory growing, first-time home buyers will want to learn all they can about getting into the market and buying their first home.

The Seminar will feature SouthStar Bank’s Senior Vice President and Loan Officer Gary Mobbs, and REALTORs® Heather Rodriguez, Caitlyn Boscamp Kistler, and Jackie Waldrip to cover topics including an overview of the home buying and mortgage process from financial preparation all the way to closing, current mortgage rates and trends, and the current state of the local real estate market. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and learn about the home buying process, as well as the many mortgage products that are available including options for no down payment and homes on acreage. Attendees will also meet industry professionals who can provide support throughout the home-buying process. The improving housing market means more homes available to choose from and competitive interest rates that are favorable for a home buyer – two great reasons to get in the game. The Seminar will be informative for first-time buyers and anyone who wants to get updated on what’s new with the buying and lending markets.

For more information about the First-Time Home Buyers Seminar or to RSVP, please contact Caitlyn Boscamp Kistler at caitlyn@lloydbarnes.com or call 830.516.4009 by March 8.
