One of the most exciting and challenging things I ever did was to buy a home. When I look back on it, I still can't believe that I made it through such a stressful time. It was well worth it, but I sure could have used some advice on what to expect. Something like a first time home buyers seminar. And that is exactly what is happening on June 28.

Rhinebeck Bank, United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region, and Hudson River Housing has joined forces to bring you an informative seminar that will help you begin your home buying process. The seminar will be held at the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory 8 North Cherry Street in Poughkeepsie from 5:30 pm - 7 pm on July 28. Learn the strategies of how to qualify for a home purchase, budgeting skills, and what to expect from the home buying process.
