Learn how to buy and sell your home with WCC classes

Post Date:03/21/2016 9:00 am

Bellingham, Wash. – New Community & Continuing Education classes offered at Whatcom Community College focus on buying and selling a home. Phil Dyer, who is a local real estate broker with decades of experience in the home buying process, will lead the courses.  Registration is now open.

“Buying Your First or Next Home” on April 12 will provide a comprehensive overview of the ever-changing home buying experience. Gain insider tips on the overall process and what to expect at each stage, from assessing your budget to closing on your home. The course covers how to find (and interview) an excellent real estate broker, loan qualifications based on your budget and needs, and a basic understanding of the inspection, financing, appraisal, title, escrow, and closing procedures.

Getting ready to sell your home? Take your first steps on April 19 with “How to Sell Your Home,” an essential workshop covering up-to-date material fundamental to the selling process. The class will guide you through the steps on preparing your home for sale, including what improvements to make, what time of year to sell, how to find a competent real estate broker, how to set a realistic price, what to consider when negotiating with an interested buyer, and much more. 

The fee is $45 per course. Both classes are held 6-9 p.m. in the Foundation Building on WCC’s campus. For more information and to register, visit or call 360.383.3200.
