Metuchen Savings Bank will host Metuchen Cares: An Economic Forum For First Time Home Buyers on Thursday, April 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Edison Branch YMCA Community Campus at 1775 Oak Tree Rd, Edison. The forum is an ongoing effort to educate consumers on becoming homeowners.

The Economic Forum will focus on four specific areas, with additional time allotted for Q & A:

  • First Steps – Determine how much you can afford; shop for a loan; learn about home-buying programs; shop for a home; make an offer; home inspection; homeowners insurance.
  • Mortgage Pre-Qualification – Pre-registered participants will receive a FREE credit check.
  • Understanding Your Credit Scores — know your credit score and what it means to banks, credit card companies and your future.
  • Discovering Down Payment Sources – Set a goal to save money each month and then adhere to it. Prioritize your family’s spending needs so that saving becomes second nature.

Ken Totten, Vice President and Chief Lending Officer at Metuchen Savings Bank, said, “Mortgage money is available to qualified homeowners who can demonstrate their ability and willingness to repay.” Interest rates remain at an all-time low and housing prices reflect a buyer’s market, now may be an opportune time for homeowners to make great deals.
