CHICAGO – Offering guidance to residents that are considering purchasing a house for the first time, state Rep. John D’Amico, D-Chicago, hosted a First Time Homebuyers Mortgage Seminar on Saturday.

“There are many grants and loans available to first time homebuyers,” D’Amico said. “Purchasing a home for the first time can be a daunting process, and this seminar informed residents of basic tips as well as the various grants and loans they may qualify for.”
