Santino, Clavin Announce First-Time Homebuyers Seminar – Town to Provide Details on Mortgages, Taxes, Inspections and More

Coming soon to a neighborhood near you! Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony J. Santino and Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin have announced a series of twelve home-buying seminars for first-time buyers. The seminars will feature financial expert Anthony Genova, who comes equipped with over a dozen years of experience in presenting first-time home buyers programs with a major international financial institution.

“Buying a home is an important milestone in a person’s life,” said Santino. “However there are intricacies and last-minute complications that may arise, potentially making it a tense experience. Our seminars will prepare first-time homebuyers with the tools and knowledge they need to confidently buy their first home.”

The seminars will provide information on mortgages, inspections, title insurance, contracts, tax payment information/options and closings. Attendees will also obtain details on their eligibility for tax exemptions, tax information, tips on how to challenge home assessments and information on local governments, including the town, county and school district.

“Our home buying seminars are rewarding and useful for residents,” said Clavin. “Real estate and home buying can be tricky, but Hempstead Town is here to give you the ‘keys’ to home ownership.”
