Upcoming Free Homebuying Informational Sessions for Employees
Buying a home can be a confusing process, especially for first-time homebuyers.
Luckily, for Syracuse University employees, there are three free upcoming informational sessions that will answer any questions you might have about purchasing a home in the City of Syracuse.
The Office of Community Engagement, in collaboration with the Real Estate and Asset Management Office and Home HeadQuarters, Inc., invites all University employees to attend one of the following sessions:
- Saturday, Oct. 21, from 9-10:30 a.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 11, from 9-10:30 a.m.
- Saturday, Dec. 2, from 9-10:30 a.m.
“Syracuse University is pleased to partner with Home HeadQuarters, an important partner who provides housing options and opportunities to become a homeowner in the Central New York region,” says Cydney Johnson ’77, G’96, vice president of community engagement and government relations.
During the sessions, the Real Estate and Asset Management Office will explore its Live Local initiative/university-area homeownership program, while Home HeadQuarters will discuss the first-time homebuyer programs.
Attendees will have their homebuying questions answered by industry experts, and learn how they can benefit from the guaranteed mortgage program at Syracuse University.
Under the program—open to all full-time and part-time University employees—the University guarantees the loan to the lender, and private mortgage insurance is waived, potentially saving the borrower thousands of dollars over the life of the mortgage.
“The homebuying information sessions give employees the opportunity to hear about the guaranteed mortgage program offered by Syracuse University and also hear helpful tips and guidance on buying a home,” Johnson says. “The opportunity to use the mortgage program to support the financial commitment of purchasing a home is such a positive tool and allows the University to support living in the City of Syracuse.”
All sessions are in Community Room 016 of the Nancy Cantor Warehouse (350 W. Fayette St.). Sign-up is required.
