Management at CCB (Cattaraugus County Bank) is pleased to announce that CCB will be hosting a “Homebuyers Seminar” on April 24, 2014, at Holiday Inn Express in Salamanca, N.Y.

Three representatives from CCB will be hosting the event: Kathy Kaus (Vice President, Senior Retail Lender), Jeff Walker (Assistant Vice President, Retail Lending and Underwriting) and Nan Painter (Assistant Vice President, Salamanca Branch Manager). Joining CCB representatives will be a local attorney and a local real estate agent.

“Purchasing a home/getting a mortgage is a very thrilling experience,” states Nan Painter of CCB. “But it can also become overwhelming and daunting. We hope that folks attending this seminar will come away with knowledge about the entire process, making it easier for them. From pre-qualifying so they know what home they can afford, to searching for the house itself, to applying for the mortgage and lastly, what happens at closing of the loan. We now have more options than ever in the area of mortgage lending and … being the only true, local, independent community bank in the area … we look forward to helping the public.”

The seminar, which begins at 5 p.m., is free to attend. Attendees are encouraged to call CCB’s Salamanca Office at (716) 945-4350 by April 22 for reservations. Coffee and refreshments will be provided to those attending.
