Buying a home is fraught with difficult decisions, and navigating the process can be daunting. For potential homebuyers in the Lansing area, there’s at least one place to get some help: The Home Buyers Club.

A partnership between the Ingham County Land Bank and the Center for Financial Health, the Home Buyers Club works with potential homebuyers, particularly ones with less than stellar credit and little-to-no savings. The program began last spring, but had its official kick-off earlier this fall.

Denise Keiser, executive director of the Center for Financial Health, and Monika Mayer, a recent homeowner thanks to the Home Buyer Club, talked with Current State. Mayer has only been in her new home since last Wednesday.

Keiser thinks Lansing is heading into a more positive housing market.
