SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) – The housing market isn't getting better as quick as most would like, but many south Georgians are still working to buy their first home.

Thursday in Sylvester, a couple of dozen people attended a workshop to help them navigate the home buying process.

Organizers say despite the bad news about the housing market, there are good opportunities for many to buy.

"Some people say what's hamburger to you is steak to someone else so the economy is bad for some like those having difficulty and are in foreclosure, but it's opportunity for others who are prepared to deal with the housing market and have good credit," said Barbara Reddick, Southwest Ga. Regional Commission.

The Southwest Georgia Regional Commission and Albany Community and Economic Development sponsored the free workshop.

Another one is scheduled for March.
