(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington's Department of Housing and Neighborhood Development Home Buyers Club is now accepting registrations for its next round of workshops, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 2 and Feb 9.

Presenters will include HAND's HUD-certified housing counselors, local real estate industry professionals and community non-profit housing providers.

Participants will receive the HAND-produced home-buying guide, "Buying a Home: A Guide For First-Time Home Buyers," and an opportunity to meet with a HAND housing counselor to develop a personalized home-buying action plan. Income eligible participants will be entered to win a $5,000 down payment and closing cost assistance from HAND, and will have access to other assistance programs.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Determining if homeownership is right for you

  • Developing a household budget and savings plan

  • Establishing good credit

  • Navigating the home-buying process from start to finish

  • Inspecting your potential home

  • Locating mortgage application and down payment assistance programs
