University Offering Free Homebuying Informational Sessions for All Employees
Buying a home can be a confusing process, but Syracuse University faculty and staff who are interested in purchasing a home can take advantage of three free upcoming informational sessions that will answer any questions you might have about the homebuying process in the City of Syracuse.
The Office of Community Engagement, in collaboration with the Office of Human Resources, the Real Estate Office and Home HeadQuarters, Inc., is pleased to invite all University employees to attend one of the following sessions:
- Jan. 28 from 9 a.m.-noon
- Feb. 25 from 9 a.m.-noon
- March 29 from 5-8 p.m.
Besides having homebuying questions answered by industry experts, attendees will also learn how they can benefit from the enhanced mortgage program at Syracuse University and hear about open positions available with the University.
“This is a great opportunity for employees. The City of Syracuse is vibrant and diverse and a great place to live,” says Cydney Johnson ’77, G’96, vice president for community engagement and government relations.
The enhanced mortgage program is open to all full-time and part-time University faculty and staff members. It enables employees to finance up to 100% of the price of the home and receive the bank’s best interest rate.
“This program allows for more employees to find homes in both the east and south sectors of our city to purchase and live in great neighborhoods. The ability to purchase and renovate homes with support is so positive in helping increase home ownership and living in off-campus areas,” Johnson says.
All sessions will occur in Community Room 016 of the Nancy Cantor Warehouse (350 W. Fayette St.). Sign-up is required.
