Remember to have FUN and Get Educated along the way!
Educating First Home Buyers is a definite passion of mine. A great way to learn all the ins and outs of the home ownership journey is by coming along to the Townsville Home Buyers Expo on June 15th and 16th at The Ville. Second year running, the event provides a one stop information hub to the savvy Home Buyer and showcases an array of local businesses that will be sure to take the hassle out of your next home buying experience. Whether you are looking to build, buy, secure finance or just want to get up to speed on the latest in home technology then this event is not to be missed.
The Home Buying Helpers will be running FREE Home Buyer information sessions throughout the weekend for those who are feeling overwhelmed with the home buying experience and require a more personalised one on one service.
Cant wait for the Expo? Lets go for a coffee and a chat to discuss your home ownership dreams.
