Whether you are in the market to purchase a cellular phone or a new home, any purchase that involves checking a credit report can be tough for first time buyers.

That's why MidFirst bank and Tulsa Community action project held it's first annual Home Ownership Free Credit Check Saturday in North Tulsa.

The purpose of the program is to increase home ownership by helping first time buyers understand the credit process.

MidFirst bank will pull a potential buyer's credit bureau and explain their buying options.

“We just feel that when you own your home you feel better about yourself. And it's not only gonna make Tulsa better...north Tulsa better, but it's gonna make
Tulsa as a whole better," says Melvin Gilliam, VP Director Community Investment.

Mid First representatives say they plan to hold another free credit check but no date or location has been set.
