Putney, VT – Back by popular demand, the BDCC’s Southern Vermont Young Professionals will be hosting another “First Time Homebuyer’s Roadmap” informational. The event is meant to provide information on resources for first time homebuyers who are looking to purchase a home in the region. Last year, 15 attendees heard from Tanner Karg of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, The Masiello Group and Sunny Leporati of Windham-Windsor Housing Trust, both local young professionals themselves.
“We feel this type of educational event is important for our region’s workforce. Part of the evolution of investing in our region is attracting a younger population that is interested in putting down more permanent roots, and buying a house can be a daunting task,” says the Southern Vermont Young Professionals coordinator Sarah Lang. “It is clear that young professionals are interested in the tools for purchasing a home, and we want to provide them with all the available tools and knowledge.”
This year’s event will be held at Club VT in Putney on November 7th, from 6-8pm. The BDCC is partnering with Peoples United Bank, Windham-Windsor Housing Trust, and The Masiello Group to continue to expand the education and knowledge around buying a first home in Southern Vermont. There are currently 20 young professionals who’ve RSVPed and room for more. Ali Pierre, a young professional who attended last year’s event and has since bought a house said “It’s way less intimidating than walking into a bank and you come away with a better big picture understanding of the entire process.”
