Home Buyers Club Takes Place This Weekend To Educate New Home Owners


The City of Bloomington’s Department of Housing and Neighborhood Development is hosting the Home Buyers Club, starting this weekend.

The workshops will help first-time home buyers learn about the home buying process.

“The Home Buyers Club is offered three or four times a year,” Assistant director of the department Marilyn Patterson, said, “It’s taught by people from the city and from our banking partners, home inspectors, appraisers, and people part of our community that do this every day.”

Patterson says the goal is to help people who have never had the opportunity to buy a house to understand the process. She also says the certificate may help students to gain access to different kinds of loans that they may not have had access to without homebuyer’s education.

The first two workshops will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, and Feb 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 .pm, at City Hall in the Showers Building. The workshops are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required. For more information on how to register contact HAND at 812-349-3401.
