The 17th annual Housing Expo runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Mariner Mall.
It’s designed to bring together prospective home buyers, persons interested in selling, prospective renters and lease holders, landlords, and home improvement personnel with local financial institutions, Realtors, title and abstract companies, and home inspection companies join the mix to kick off the spring home buying season.
There will be more than 50 exhibitors on hand to provide information, resources and materials for the public. Real Estate information, the latest home mortgage products from financial institutions, housing and Home product exhibits will be available with consultation and time to discuss individual housing needs with housing professionals. Seminars begin at 11 a.m. and run throughout the day. Many exhibitors provide door prizes and the event is free.
“Each year over 1,000 people attend the Housing Expo and find the information they need to buy, rent, sell, or remodel their home,” said Sandy Carlson, Director of Catholic Community Services, Housing Counseling Program which sponsors the Housing Expo, “ It’s a great way to gather the information a family needs to begin the process of home buying or relocation. The area housing professionals are very helpful and accessible.”
With so many housing professionals, lenders, Realtors, and remodelers under one roof, at one time, the Housing Expo offers an opportunity to begin planning for either buying, selling, renting or remodeling a family home.
The Housing Expo also provides an opportunity for many emergency housing agencies and providers of housing for low- to moderate-income families to disseminate information.
