Homebuying 101: Claim Your Economic Power and Close the Gender Wealth Gap

Women are building equity and wealth in real estate at a faster pace than any other demographic in the country. Single women are buying homes at more than twice the rate of single men. Single women also make up the second-largest segment of homebuyers after married couples (in which women tend to be the majority influencer in homebuying decisions). More women homebuyers leads to a changing economic landscape and shapes the way wealth accumulates. Building equity is building power – and women are building it at record rates.

Dreaming of a place to call your own? At this (free!) townhall, we’ll talk about how home ownership can build wealth, and share the important steps to homebuying for renters and first time buyers. No dry spreadsheets – just real questions and answers. We’ll talk through financial readiness and financing options, the offer process, and current market conditions.

Join us for drinks and bites. Bring all your questions - this will be a fun and interactive Q&A format.
