2013 Home Buyers Fair

Each year the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority sponsors a home buyer’s fair to bring together potential buyers, mortgage lenders, inspection companies, government agencies, and related business in one place – one-stop shopping for home buyers! This year the Home Buyers Fair will take place on Saturday, March 16th at the Radisson Hotel – Center of New Hampshire.

The NH Housing Finance Authority has scheduled three very informative seminars on mortgages (at 9:45AM), how to shop for a home (at 11AM), and how to check out if a home is physically sound (at 12:15PM).

If you are thinking of purchasing your first home or  thinking of downsizing or upsizing, you will find many people ready to assist you. Major New Hampshire lenders such as Residential Mortgage Services and Merrimack Mortgage will be there, as well as Citizen’s Bank, St. Mary’s Bank, and others. Home inspection services will also have booths, as well as insurance companies and real estate agencies.

Representing Prudential Verani Realty – NH’s largest real estate company – will be myself and my fellow agents, Kathy DeMello, Betsy Levesque, Tanya Verfaillie, and Denise Witham.  Drop by our booth and say hello – and enter our raffle for some great prizes!

Admission to the fair and the seminars is free. The hours for the Home Buyers Fair at the Radisson Hotel – Center of New Hampshire (700 Elm Street, Manchester) are 9AM – 2PM, Saturday March 16th. For more information, click here.
