DAAR to Participate in NOVA Housing Expo

To help support affordable housing opportunities in the region, DAAR will sponsor and participate in the Northern Virginia Housing Expo on Saturday, March 18th from 10AM-3PM at Loudoun County’s Dominion High School, 21326 Augusta Drive, Sterling, VA. DAAR’s participation was made possible by a National Association of REALTORS® Housing Opportunity grant designed to help support activities within the REALTOR® organization that create and expand affordable housing opportunities.

This 7th annual event, hosted by the AHOME Foundation in cooperation with government housing departments in Loudoun, Prince William, Fairfax, and Arlington Counties; the Cities of Alexandria, Falls Church and Fairfax; and the Town of Herndon, will help showcase Northern Virginia’s affordable homeownership and rental opportunities.

Prospective home buyers and renters can browse dozens of exhibits featuring apartment rentals, government assistance programs, home-buying opportunities and professionals, mortgage information and assistance and much more.

As a supporter of the event, DAAR will participate in a workshop “Are you Ready to Buy” and within the exhibit hall provide information on the value and how to work with DAAR REALTOR®, housing market information for Loudoun County and research information on home buyers and sellers as well as trends in development.

Consumers can also take advantage of helpful free workshops and one-on-one credit counseling consultations designed to help understand issues and considerations before renting or purchasing a home.

Sessions include:

  • Are You Ready to Rent?
  • Are You Ready to Buy?
  • The ABCs of Credit Scores
  • Rental and Homebuying Market Overviews
  • Household Finance
  • Buyer and Rental Assistance Programs
