Buying a home can be both exciting and enjoyable, and sometimes a little Intimidating. Purchasing a home maybe the single most important purchase of your life, and certainly may be the most costly.
The staff at Fort Riley's Housing Services Office (HSO) wants to take the fear out of buying a home. That's why the garrison offers free homebuyer seminars monthly during PCS season and at least quarterly throughout the rest of the year. These seminars are for our Soldiers, their Families and civilian employees to inform them of the procedures for selecting a qualified real estate agent and applying for a loan. Lending professionals walk potential homebuyers through the credit approval process, escrow procedures and closing costs. HSO conducts these seminars free of charge.
The Central Flint Hills Region has a community for everyone's taste. Whether you are looking for a home in the larger towns of Manhattan and Junction City or a bit farther from post in Herington or Clay Center, HSO's seminar will give you the tools you need to successfully purchase your home. And in today's economy, there may be no better time to purchase your first home.
Potential homebuyers can find out about tax credits and other incentives how it can best benefit them at the HSO seminar. In the classroom environment, without the pressures of someone trying to sell you something, attendees will go over the many aspects and considerations that go into buying a home.

Speakers also will go over the types of financing available through Veterans Administration loans, USDA loans and conventional mortgage loans.
