HOMEOWNERS – Things You Should Consider
The Somerset County Coalition on Affordable Housing (SCCOAH) is a HUD-approved housing counseling agency that has helped its clients overcome their housing hurdles for over 20 years.
“Homeowners – Things You Should Consider” is an in-depth educational program for current homeowners. This FREE program will ensure that your home ownership experience continues to be a successful and positive one. It is offered only one time per year and is held in the month of February to allow homeowners with property tax questions enough time to submit appeals (4/1/10 is NJ deadline) or get answers.
“Many homeowners recognize that their home value is less now than in previous years and therefore feel their tax assessment is too high, but do not understand the tax appeal process.” stated Realtor Judy Lewis, SCCOAH Board Member.
The program is scheduled for February 25, 2010 and will be held at the Somerville Elks Lodge, 375 Union Avenue, Bridgewater, NJ 08807. The program begins promptly at 5:15 pm and ends at 8:15 pm and will include a light dinner.
Guest speakers will be on hand that evening to discuss topics such as Credit, Realistic Budgeting, Getting a new mortgage loan including Home Equity Loans/Lines of Credit, Homeowners Insurance, Real Estate Taxes, Home Maintenance, Being a Good Neighbor and more.
“More than ever, homeowners need help in order to hold onto their homes. Our agency provides homeowners with a wealth of information. We just don’t help families buy their first homes, but strive to do everything possible to keep them successful in those homes” stated Sharon Clark, SCCOAH’s Executive Director.
