Approved Funding, a leading privately-held local mortgage banker continues its “Educational Seminars and Workshop” series for 2019. After completing a highly successful Real Estate & Investment Workshop in July, the company is pleased to announce two additional opportunities for real estate education and training.
“Approved Funding prides itself on being more than just a local mortgage provider,” says Shmuel Shayowitz, President of Approved. “We distinguish ourselves with the ‘value’ that we can offer our clients and business partners, that goes well beyond just being able to offer low rates and costs.” “The overwhelming nature of a mortgage, and the burdens that buying or owning a home demands requires information, education, resources and expertise that we work diligently to provide,” concludes Shayowitz.
In this regard, the company has launched an extensive calendar of informative seminars and workshops helping everyone from beginner first time home buyers, to savvy and experienced real estate owners and investors who want to know the tricks of the trade. These seminars will be held throughout the North Jersey area in tandem with local municipalities, associations, and chambers of commerce.
In East Orange NJ, Approved Funding is proud to participate in an upcoming First Time Homebuyers Workshop, in a series of workshops held by the Dept. of Neighborhood Housing & Revitalization. The monthly educational workshops are endorsed by East Orange Mayor, Ted R. Green and are held at the City Council Chambers in City Hall Plaza. In addition to the learning component, the program offers up to $25,000 in grants towards down payments and closing costs for eligible applicants and home buyers.
