Open letter from Senator Johnny Isakson, Georgia in reference to First time Homebuyer Tax Credit, currently under review and debate in the Senate.
First-Time Homebuyers Forum
I'm pleased to announce that I will host a statewide First-Time Homebuyer's Forum on Saturday, June 27, 2009. The workshop will be held at the Busbee Center at Gwinnett Technical College in Lawrenceville, Ga., from 10 a.m. until noon.
This forum is an opportunity for first-time homebuyers to hear from professionals on best practices for first-time homebuyers, federal and state tax incentives, how to choose a Realtor, and general information on the home purchasing process. Presenting organizations will include the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, the Georgia Association of Realtors and the Mortgage Bankers Association of Georgia. Representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, the Atlanta Board of Realtors and Gwinnett County also will be available to speak with attendees.
Anyone interested in attending interested must make a reservation online at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting my office at (770) 661-0999. All persons who wish to attend must do so by the registration deadline on Thursday, June 25, 2009, at 5 p.m.
I am honored to be able to offer this excellent opportunity to first-time homebuyers from across Georgia. As someone who was in the real estate business for more than three decades, I'm well aware of the value of a knowledgeable buyer. Information is power in home buying and negotiating, and I encourage anyone interested in meeting with professionals in the field to participate in our forum.
Senatory Johnny Isakson, Georgia
