Join The Holden Agency LIVE as we discuss upcoming changes to the home buying process

On Thursday, April 6, The Holden Agency will be streaming LIVE from Facebook and has invited Chicago Title Agency, Civista Bank, and Huntington Bank to help explain upcoming changes to the home buying process.

Ohio’s “Good Funds” law has been in existence since 1996 and outlines the types of funding appropriate for the down payment of a new home purchase. Recent changes to this law are going into effect this Thursday, April 6, and will modify real estate transactions.

The Holden Agency, with the help of Huntington Bank, Civista Bank and Chicago Title Agency, will help explain these changes and how this process will be different for future home buyers.

Tune in and let us walk you through the changes to this law!
