Home Ownership: When is the right time?

Jayne McBurney, M.S., and Dr. Carolyn Bird, of N.C. State University, will present Home Ownership: When is the right time?

The purchase of a home is often the single largest financial transaction that an individual or family will make. The home buying process can seem complex, as there are many factors that determine when is the right time to buy a home. This is especially true for service members given that periodic relocation is typically an inherent part of military service. This web conference will discuss the home buying process including: financial readiness for the purchase, how to determine housing affordability and service –related considerations that may influence the purchase decision.

1.5 CEUs will be available for AFC credentialed participants through AFCPE.

Jayne McBurney, M.S. is an Extension Agent in Family & Consumer Sciences in Johnston County, NC. She is a Certified Housing Counselor and Certified Reverse Mortgage Counselor and teaches monthly Homebuyer Education workshops.

Dr. Carolyn Bird is an Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University and Family Resource Management Specialist for NC Cooperative Extension. She is the Principal Investigator on the Military Families Learning Network's Personal Finance Professional Development Project.
