21st Annual Home Buyers Fair
The Durham Regional Association of REALTORS® and the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange & Chatham Counties present the 21st Annual ‘Home Buyers Fair’ at The Streets at Southpoint in Durham on Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Industry specialists including builders, REALTORS®, mortgage companies, home improvement experts, attorneys and suppliers will offer FREE information about buying a home, current market conditions, remodeling and why home ownership is a smart financial move, a means to achieving financial security.
Housing is at its most affordable level in decades. Mortgage rates remain low, sellers are motivated, owning a home is a great investment, and can lead to many years of happy memories. Current market conditions won’t last long. Research shows that prices are beginning to stabilize and price declines are over. Shrinking inventory and increasing home values make now an excellent time to buy a home. Attend the Home Buyers Fair to help you achieve the American dream and to learn about products and services to enhance your home.
The Home Buyers Fair is a FREE, bilingual educational event for consumers at all income levels interested in the home buying process. Informative mini sessions can help determine if you’re ready to buy a home, invest, or sell your existing home.
