City offers free housing counseling

April 14, 2008

Albany--  The City of Albany wants to make sure people have the right tools to make their dreams of home ownership come true.

Once a month, Community and Economic Development holds a free fair housing workshop for aspiring homeowners. It educates participants on everything from financing to budgeting. Depending on circumstances, buying the first home isn't always easy.

"What we really try to encourage everybody to do is to get their credit and their stable budget in line first because that's the main thing right now. The industry right now is kind of tough so having good or clean credit is the name of the game right now," said B.J. Jackson Burton.

Free workshops are also held in Camilla and Bainbridge. For more information on dates and times, call 229-483-7650.
