OMG of Homeownership Workshop

Are you thinking about buying a home? Or have you recently purchased one and still need some help with simple repairs or landscaping? The City of Columbia and Richland County teamed up and offered a free workshop on Saturday, June 22 that may have interested you. Last year about this time, we were thinking about buying a house and I found out about this workshop. It was incredible. We showed up a little early and enjoyed some free breakfast and wandered around the vendor booths which included foundation repair specialists, real estate agents and attorneys to name a few. We each took 3 different classes absorbing as much as possible so that we could report back to the other after the experience was over. It truly was a great Saturday morning. We left with some great new knowledge and even a pair of faucet covers (lucky winners of a door prize). There is always something great going on in this city.

And check out just a few of the books that Richland Library has to offer about some of these very subject areas that were covered in the workshop.
