What is a Home Buyers Workshop?

Our home buyers workshops are hands-on, educational two-hour seminars designed to teach important things to know when buying a home. 

Our workshops are led by our Team Lead/listing agent, Erica Rawls, along with her team of licensed real estate agents/realtors in Harrisburg, PA. 

We cover the process of buying a home, from mortgage pre-approval to what happens once you go under contract. Other topics we cover include but are not limited to:

  • What mortgage lenders look for when reviewing your finances during the pre-approval process
  • How to make sure you put yourself in a position to compete in a sellers market
  • Understanding appraisals and inspections and how they impact the home sale process
  • How your credit score impacts your ability to buying a home
  • And much more!

We also offer hands-on activities in our home buyers workshops to help our potential buyers understand what it takes to write a contract AND win an offer on a home, especially during a competitive seller’s market.
