Largo, MD ---The robust housing market in Prince George’s County makes now a great time to purchase a home. Whether you’re in the market for new construction, resale, condos or senior living, Prince George’s County has something for everyone and every budget. So join the Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development and the Housing Authority of Prince George's County on Saturday, June 10th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM as it hosts the 2017 Housing Fair at the Sports and Learning Complex, 8001 Sheriff Road, Landover, MD.
The Housing Fair is presented by the Prince George's County Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and the Housing Authority of Prince George's County and sponsored by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, Bank of America and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
Housing Fair attendees will have an opportunity to meet with housing industry professionals, such as mortgage lenders, realtors, housing counselors, banks, non-profit organizations and various government agencies. The MD Department of Housing and Community Development will have information about the Maryland Mortgage Program and the “You’ve Earned It!” program. The Fair will also hold workshops on financial literacy, foreclosure alternatives, managing your money and more.
Again this year, an expert panel discussion will open up the Housing Fair: Condominium and HOA Board Governance: How It Impacts Your Property Value. Many first time homebuyers purchase condominiums without knowing or understanding the governance behind them. This panel will enlighten potential homebuyers considering the purchase of a condo and answer questions for those who have already made their purchase.
New this year, DHCD will pay the rent or mortgage of one lucky winner, up to $2,000! In addition, DHCD will present its House Lottery this year and give pre-qualified applicants a chance to win up to $10,000 toward the purchase of their first home.
During the Mid-Day Event, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III will draw the names of 3 winners at 12:00 noon. All applicants must be present to win.
As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents. It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved. It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible. This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
