Tune in to first-time homebuyers webinar


Are you buying a home on Long Island? With a house comes many responsibilities, but what exactly does that entail? 

Home buying can seem like a large, daunting task, especially during a pandemic and with a surge in demand for real estate, but experts are there to help. Join Herald Inside LI for a free 45-minute webinar that will feature a panel of real estate professionals, including:

Veronica Ferrero, first vice president and community lending coordinator at Emigrant Mortgage Company Inc.

Matthew Korman, licensed associate real estate broker, Douglas Elliman

Scott Wallace, certified buyer representative, real estate salesman, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty

Husband and wife Max and Ashley Kramer, of North Bellmore, recently bought a home during the pandemic and will speak about their experience.

Skye Ostreicher, of RichnerLive and Herald Community Newspapers, will moderate the discussion, which will guide first-time homebuyers in how to purchase a house. Panelists will also discuss special loans for first-time homebuyers.

“I feel that getting knowledge out now is important for first-time homebuyers as they need to lay the groundwork for the home-buying and financing process,” Ferrero said. “Spending  time up front learning from knowledgeable sources allows them to be educated, prepared and ready to put a plan in place so that their first-time home-buying goes well for them, both financially and emotionally.”

Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, Douglas Elliman and Emigrant Mortgage are the event sponsors.
