On April 12, 2012, the Community Development Corporation (CDC) welcomed faculty and staff to the First Time Home Buyer Fair held in the Seby Jones Art Gallery on campus. The fair was held to give Saint Augustine's University faculty and staff the opportunity to meet one-on-one with mortgage representatives from BB&T, Wells Fargo, City of Raleigh CD Loan Specialists, builders from the Phase II Cook Street Housing Development and Saint Augustine's University CDC staff. Furthermore, the fair attendees were able to view housing plans for the Cooke Street Phase III homes that will be built in the Idlewild neighborhood, a few blocks from campus.
The potential first time home buyers spent the afternoon learning about the various programs in place to assist low-to-moderate income households, for more information, contact the CDC Office at 919-516-5230.
