Release date: 2/15/2016

Beloit, Wisconsin – As part of its continued commitment to providing Sound Advice to its customers and communities through major financial milestones, First National Bank and Trust (FNBT) will be hosting a free First-Time Homebuyer Event on March 22 at its main location in downtown Beloit. 

According to a poll by PulteGroup, 89% of renters think that owning a home is part of the American dream. In some instances, they may be able to own a home for less than it costs to rent. This informative and interactive evening with a group of trusted experts is designed to help first-time buyers navigate the sometimes complicated process of purchasing a home. Home ownership is a vital part of building wealth and FNBT wants to help its customers and community members understand the process in order to achieve their financial goals.    
“FNBT is proud to offer this First-time Homebuyer Event,” said FNBT Vice President of Mortgage & Consumer Lending, Lisa Grover. “Owning a home is a dream for many people, but the process can be confusing. We know many banks offer seminars and direct home buying presentations, however our goal is to create an event with cocktails and food to provide a social experience for young buyers to learn, have casual conversations with experts, and leave with a greater confidence about the home buying process.”
Consumers looking to buy their first home are encouraged to RSVP today at or call 800.667.4401. The event will be held at First National Bank and Trust, 345 East Grand Avenue, Beloit, Wisconsin on March 22, 2016 from 5:30-7pm.
