January 22, 2009

The Virginia Housing Development Authority will present a free seminar at Northern Virginia Community College to educate people about the responsibilities of homeownership.

The lecture will cover the importance of financial responsibility, ways to use credit wisely, how to create a personal strategy to build financial security through homeownership, and a variety of mortgage loans available with affordable financing terms.

“Wealth Starts at Home” is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Feb. 10 in the Ernst Cultural Center Forum on NOVA’s Annandale Campus, 8333 Little River Turnpike. Attendees without NOVA parking permits should use the visitor parking garage for $1 per hour. Free food and giveaways will be provided.
