Spring has sprung (finally) across the U.S., which means many people will be buying and selling homes while the weather is good and so their children can be settled in at school for the Fall. This webinar will provide dozens of tips for home buyers and sellers including some strategies that are generally not included in standard references about the home-buying process. The first hour will cover general advice for buying and selling a home and the last 30 minutes will cover information specific for military families. Specific webinar topics include:
  • 20 Steps for Successful Home Purchase
  • 15 Tips for Successful Home Sale
  • Information about the Servicemember's Civil Relief Act
  • Buying and selling tips for military home owners
