Investing in a home is one of the largest commitments you will ever make.

You have to consider the square footage and number of floors. How much is the property tax for your desired residential area? What will utility costs do to your budget? Will your home have enough bedrooms and bathrooms or a basement (oh my!).

Yet, these aren’t usually among the initial things that come to mind for first-time homebuyers. Instead, you’re wondering about financing, insurance and how many years you’ll be locked into a repayment plan.

When diving headfirst into what may be the largest sum of money you ever spend on a single object, you want to know you have the proper knowledge and insight to anticipate the surprises lurking around each corner. Your credit union can help…

On Tuesday, April 5 at 6:15 p.m., Arsenal Credit Union’s Swansea location will host a free first-time homebuyers seminar. Join us and one of our mortgage lenders, First Integrity, for a discussion on the following topics regarding the purchase of your future home:

  • The importance of your credit score
  • Available financial assistance for first-time homebuyers
  • What to expect during the preapproval process
  • Why you should hire a real estate agent
  • And more!

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to Jenny Remes by Monday, April 4; simply call 314.919.1006 or send an email to We look forward to spending time with you!
