When it comes to deciding who to work with when you are in the market for a new home, Urban Edge knows that you have lots of options. So why should you work with us, especially when we’re asking questions the other guys don’t?

We use the information you provide to create a home purchase package that is unique to you. Our team members understand that the process of purchasing a home can be stressful and confusing. When you work with us, you can rest assured that we will arm you with the resources and knowledge to make informed, unbiased decisions. It’s the “Urban Edge Way” to ensure you are prepared for the responsibilities of homeownership and are more resistant to default and foreclosure. At Urban Edge, it’s our goal to make sure that you’re purchasing a home that you can not only afford to buy, but afford to keep.

Credit Building Workshop – Boston Builds Credit in partnership with SPARK Boston @ Mattapan Branch of the Boston Public Library
Apr 26 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

Having a hard time understanding credit and how it affects you? Would you like to learn how to improve your credit score? This free workshop will discuss the basics of a credit report and explain the credit score and scoring models, plus provide tips on improving your score. As part of the Boston Builds Credit, we want you to understand (1) why credit is important, (2) that you don’t have to be rich to have good credit but you need to understand how the system works, and (3) there are free resources right in your neighborhood, such as the coaching at the Roxbury Center for Financial Empowerment in Dudley Square to help you build your credit.

This workshop is co-sponsored by SPARK Boston and Boston Builds Credit, and will be held at the Mattapan Library. All are welcome to attend!
