Home Center to help home buyers

Posted: Updated:

The world of mortgage is ever changing, according to those in the industry.

That's the inspiration behind the recently opened Home Center, which will help potential homeowners through the loan process.

The center has been open for two weeks and Wednesday, some of those involved in the starting it celebrated this afternoon.

The Human Resources Development Council (HRDC) and several banks, along with other businesses and agencies created a one-stop resource for people looking to buy or rent.

Financial counseling, credit repair, fiscal responsibility tips and budgeting are some of the services.

All this is aimed at helping people buy a home and avoid foreclosure.

"Loan documentation has become so voluminous anymore," said Ryan Auer, real estate market manager for Stockman Bank. "And the way that people qualify to get home loans has become so different than it was even 10 years ago. The home center intake staff will absolutely counsel folks, look at their financial picture, tell them  how they can get from point A to point B to become a homeowner. And if there are things in the middle that need to be addressed, the home center will point those folks in the right direction."

Auer led the capital campaign and estimates it will cost about $100,000 dollars a year to run the program.

The Home Center is located at 3124 1st Avenue South.
