NAUGATUCK -- Right now, it's a good time for first-time buyers to purchase a home, but the process can be overwhelming. Ion Bank in Naugatuck is taking part in this year's Home of Distinction project to provide tips and advice.

Ion Bank has 17 branches and helps customers find a plan that leads to building equity.

First time buyers can take part in government programs. It's also a good time for seasoned homeowners to refinance.

Tours are coming in September and will benefit Bread For Life.
