Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is inviting Elk Grove area residents to an information-packed homebuyer workshop to be held on Wednesday, August 3 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at its office located at 9250 Laguna Springs Drive in Elk Grove. 

The workshop, entitled “Buying a Home in Today’s Market,” will be conducted by veteran Realtor Lisa Purcell, of the Purcell Group, who will be joined by a local mortgage expert.  The two will discuss the hot topics of today’s real estate market and help homebuyers navigate through the maze of issues surrounding purchasing short sale, second homes and bank-owned homes.  Attendees will receive a booklet of useful information and tips that they can use throughout the home buying process. 

“Today’s homebuyer needs to understand so much more about how the real estate market works,” said Purcell.  “Without a thorough understanding of the differences between short sales and REOs, buyers can easily become frustrated in today’s market.”

The workshop is open to first-time homebuyers, seasoned investors and repeat buyers who are interested in discovering the benefits of homeownership, as well as tips for qualifying for a home loan.  

Size is limited to 30 participants and advance registration is required.  To register for the workshop, please visit or contact Lisa Purcell directly at 916.718.9611.
