Mayor Karl Dean will host fair to connect families with homeownership opportunities

Announcement From The Office Of Mayor Karl Dean

Prospective Nashville homeowners are invited to attend the second annual Nashville Housing Fair to learn about homeownership and the process of purchasing a home, including how to take advantage of the $8,000 federal tax credit for first-time homebuyers available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Mayor Karl Dean announced today that the 2009 Nashville Housing Fair will be held at the Sommet Center on Sunday, July 26 from 1-5 p.m. The fair will be comprised of informational booths from over 50 organizations, including real estate agencies, homebuilders, lenders and non profits. Door prizes provided by sponsors will be given away throughout the day. The event is free and open to the public.

“Last year’s Housing Fair at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds was such a tremendous success, this year the fair is being expanded and relocated to the Sommet Center,” Dean said. “Realtors will tell you this is a great time to buy a home – interest rates are at historic lows. The Housing Fair is the city’s way of making sure we’re doing everything we can to help families find a home they can afford and enjoy here in Davidson County.”

This year’s Housing Fair is presented in partnership with the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency, Tennessee Housing Development Agency, Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity, The Housing Fund and The Tennessean.
