Press release from: StartingPoint Realty

Competitive Market Conditions Require Home Buying Education
First time Chicago home buyers face a host of challenges in today’s real estate market. Low home inventory, combined with rising prices, fast-paced sales, and rising interest rates have created a highly-competitive environment that shows no signs of relenting.
The conditions are daunting for any home buyer. For first time buyers, the situation adds stress to a process that can already seem overwhelming. To overcome the hurdles, an increasing number of prospective buyers are turning to home buying seminars for information, education and guidance.
“Attendance is up,” says Ryan Gable, founder of StartingPoint Realty. “We’ve been offering free first-time home buying seminars since 2004. The first weeks of 2018 have brought some of the strongest turnout we’ve ever seen. During January alone, we had 104 people learn about the home buying process.”
StartingPoint Realty’s seminars include topics about credit and mortgage pre-approvals, listing data, purchase contracts, negotiations, home inspections, property taxes, home owner associations and more. Each seminar is taught by an experienced real estate broker and mortgage lender, and includes a question-and-answer session. There are no sales pitches involved.
While home buying tips are available online, Gable says the seminars offer a true education. “We can teach you more in two hours than you could probably research on your own over several weeks. It’s an immersive experience, but a social one, too.”
Since 2004, StartingPoint Realty has specialized in educating and representing first time home buyers throughout Chicago and the Northwest Suburbs. StartingPoint Realty offers free, first-time home buyer seminars at various locations in Chicagoland. Corporate seminars are also available for companies who wish to offer home buying information to their employees. For more information, call 847-348-1154 or visit

Chicago First-Time Buyers Prefer New or Updated Homes
