Podcast Episode 32: Homeownership, Housing Counseling, and More with Avenue

December 8, 2023 | by Anna Orendain

Categories: First Time Buyer, Homeownership, Podcast


As much as we LOVE talking about everything about homeownership, we know how intimidating the homebuying process can be, especially for first-time home buyers. That's why our very own Frank Duplechain sat down with Angela Guerrero and Victoria Garcia with Avenue to discuss how to combat higher interest rates, become better educated on the homebuying process, and finally break into homeownership!

This podcast episode was originally recorded as part of a webinar hosted by Avenue in late October 2023. Listen in around minute 13 to catch an overview of our programs!
