SALAMANCA - Cattaraugus County Bank will host a homebuyers seminar at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Holiday Inn Express in Salamanca.
Three representatives from CCB will host the event: Kathy Kaus, vice president and senior retail lender; Jeff Walker, assistant vice president, retail lending and underwriting; and Nan Painter, assistant vice president and Salamanca branch manager. Joining CCB representatives will be a local attorney and a local real estate agent.
"Purchasing a home/getting a mortgage is a very thrilling experience," Painter said. "But it can also become overwhelming and daunting. We hope that folks attending this seminar will come away with knowledge about the entire process, making it easier for them. From pre-qualifying so they know what home they can afford, to searching for the house itself, to applying for the mortgage and lastly, what happens at closing of the loan. We now have more options than ever in the area of mortgage lending and, being the only true, local, independent community bank in the area, we look forward to helping the public."
The seminar is free to attend. To make a reservation, call the bank's Salamanca office at 945-4350 by Tuesday. Coffee and refreshments will be provided to those attending.
