Housing Hubbub

In March, local affordable housing builders and developers came together to share information and answer questions about their upcoming affordable housing projects at information fairs in Redmond and Bend.

Four affordable housing builders and developers, including Bend-Redmond Habitat for Humanity, KOR Land Trust, First Story, and Woodhaven Community Housing, gave presentations at the events to a crowd of 80 attendees in Redmond and 93 in Bend. NeighborImpact’s HomeSource program director, Sonia Capece, shared valuable information about homeownership readiness and steps to prepare for a mortgage.
Attendees had the opportunity to learn about guidelines for affordable home qualification and ownership as well as to ask questions of the presenters and special guests.

“Homebuying is a journey and no matter where you are today, the event offered tools and contacts for our neighbors to be able to stay in the communities that they call home,” said Sonia.
