Home Ownership Seminars Set for Sept. 9, Oct. 21

DEMING -- Thinking of buying a home but don't know where to begin? Interested home buyers can pick up some pinters before they purchase by attending one of two home ownership programs Sept. 9 or Oct. 21 in Deming.


HomeOwner$hip, a free home buyer's seminar, is sponsored by New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service and Rural Economic and Community Development (formerly FmHA).

The seminar addresses such issues as home affordability and demonstrates the amount of money saved in monthly payments by putting more down at closing. Susan Wright, NMSU Extension consumer education specialist, will present "Are You Ready To Buy A Home?" and "What Is 'Closing' All About?"

JoAnn Emmel, Extension energy specialist, will discuss "What To Look For In A House" and "Taking Care of our New Home." Mary Ellen McKay, Extension home economics department head, will tell those attending how to obtain a mortgage.

Each seminar will run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Rural Economic and Community Development (RECD) office at 405 E. Florida in Deming. Refreshments will be served.

The public can preÐregister for the Sept. 9 seminar by Aug. 26. Those wanting to attend the Oct. 21 seminar should preÐ register by Oct. 7.
