Ventura County Community Development Corporation To Host Free Refinance Workshop

Ventura County, CA – A new resource is available to Ventura county homeowners to address common questions relating mortgage refinancing. The information from this workshop will help families understand the refinance process, key factors to consider before refinancing, the difference between an FHA Streamline and a Conventional Loan, how refinancing affects homeowners who received down payment assistance loan or grant, among other topics. The workshop will be held Tuesday, November 17th, 2015 at 6pm in English and Spanish. It is offered free of charge by Ventura County Community Development Corporation, located at 2231 Sturgis Road, Suite A in Oxnard, CA.
Alex Vega, VCCDC Director of Lending Services, who will be one of the speakers, says “Contrary to popular belief, a refinance is not for everyone. Homeowners have to evaluate their current situation to determine if refinancing is right for them at any given point in time. We hope to educate homeowners in our community by giving them the necessary information they need to make an educated decision.”
