News Flash - My First Home Expo Coming February 27!

Posted February 18, 2010

Boulder Creek Life and Home to provide free expert advice on lending, tax incentive, greening a home, financial planning and more

Boulder Creek Life & Home announced today that it will host the first ever My First Home Expo at their West Longmont townhome community of Kingsbridge on Saturday, February 27th from 10:00am to 2:00pm. This FREE event will bring together industry professionals from all walks of life to conduct short presentations and question and answer sessions about topics relevant to the first time buyer. Information will pertain to all aspects of home buying and ownership from financial planning to lending options to organizing and greening a home.

“It’s clearly a great time for the first time home buyer to get into the real estate game,” said David Sinkey, Principal of Boulder Creek Life & Home. “But many first time buyers have a ton of questions and concerns about the process and they don’t know where to go to get their questions answered. This expo is a one-stop shop to get all the information they need to move forward and take advantage of both the tax incentive and the buyer’s market.”

Kingsbridge Townhomes were selected for the expo because they are a short ten minute drive from Boulder and offer a price point starting at $200K, which is rarely seen in the area and appeals to first time home buyers eager to take advantage of the current tax incentive. Each of the sessions, all focused on different topics, will take place within one of the model homes on property.

For every registered attendee, a $20 donation will be made to Boulder’s Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) by Boulder Creek Builders and it’s sponsors Advantage Bank, County Line Lumber and Taylor Movers, and all attendees will have four chances to win an iPOD Nano during two separate drawings.

The expo will be made up of two different sessions taking place at 11:00 am and 1:00pm with speakers from the following areas:

* Financial Planning
* Home Performance Solutions – Home energy efficiency presentation
* Lending Practices
* New Homebuyer Tax Credit and Tax Breaks on Your First Home
* Organizing Your First Home
* iPod Nano Giveaway!

“We are excited to bring the My First Home Expo to Kingsbridge, our newest community in Longmont,” said Sinkey. “We hope this event will get us acquainted with the local community, raise money for a great charity and offer a valuable resource to first time home buyers.”
