Providence REALTORS® Train to Help Consumers

By HOM Editor

The real estate marketplace can be a confusing place, especially for first-time homebuyers. The Greater Providence Board of REALTORS® is helping to ease that confusion by preparing member REALTORS® to work better with the consumers they represent.

The Board has joined with nonprofit community development organizations and the state Housing Opportunities Commission to offer REALTORS® additional training for working with consumers. Part of this education involves instruction in how to work with first-time homebuyers.

Topics include working with lower- and middle-income buyers, how to help single moms with home-buying challenges, the process of financing a home, how to work with lenders, the importance of credit scores, and the importance of home inspections. The philosophy behind this training is that the better educated REALTORS® are, the better service they can offer consumers, property buyers and sellers.

All homebuyers benefit from the services of a knowledgeable REALTOR®. This is especially true for first-time homebuyers and low-income homebuyers in the Providence area.

Members of the Greater Providence Board of REALTORS® are dedicated to doing all they can to give the best service possible to all consumers.
