MELS lawyers and housing experts discussed buyers and sellers concerns, retaining and working with a realtor; financing; home inspections, and more.
MELS Director Bill Whalen said: “The interest rates on mortages are at record lows and despite the pandemic, working families are moving ahead with plans for home ownership.”
“DC 37 members can use MELS lawyers at closings and take advantage of programs for first time buyers and more,” he said.
