“Say Aloha to Your Landlord” Event For First-Time Homebuyers on Kauai
In conjunction with the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center (HHC), Hawaii Life is hosting a free Homeownership Workshop on Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 9-11am for Kauai residents interested in becoming first-time homebuyers. The “Say Aloha to Your Landlord” event is taking place at Hawaii Life’s new Poipu office located at the Shops at Kuku’iula.

This free and public event will help Kauai renters better understand the home purchase process and discover whether or not HHC can help them achieve their homeownership goals. Having worked with first-time homebuyers who completed the homeownership certification classes and those who have not, I noticed that the buyers with the certification were much more in the ‘driver’s seat’ of their home purchase.
What to Expect
HHC has the tools to promote successful homeownership. I am pleased that representatives from Kauai County Housing, Old Republic Title Company, and Peak Mortgage will be guest speakers at the workshop on 11/8.
Dale S. Tomei, Education Coordinator for HHC, commented that “homeownership seems like a distant dream for many residents on Kauai, and the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center is here to help guide first-time homebuyers through the preparation and purchase process. This organization intends to be a one-stop-shop of homeownership information and resources, providing classes about preparing for homeownership and understanding the purchase process, individualized and confidential counseling, workshops, referrals, and post-purchase services.”
After attending the free workshop, those that are interested are able to enroll in HHC’s Homebuyer Certification classes, which cover important information to help first-time homebuyers better understand the home purchasing process. The initial workshop is open to the public. Enrolling in the two-part Homebuyer Certification class requires a $60 membership fee to the Hawaii HomeOwnership Center.
