Thinking about buying a new home? Register now for the City of Arlington's inaugural Homeownership Fair to learn more about buying a home in today's real estate market, down payment assistance programs, credit repair and other topics.

The Homeownership Fair is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 25 at the Arlington Convention Center, 1200 Ballpark Way.

This event will offer informational sessions on topics such as mortgage lending, foreclosure prevention, affordable housing programs, weatherization, energy savings, insurance, city home repair programs and more. Residents will have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with exhibitors from mortgage lenders, real estate agents, housing specialists, and city personnel.

'The value of attending the Homeownership Fair is that you can learn from industry professionals how to buy your American Dream. It is probably easier than you think. A home is the best investment you can make in your family's future. Remember, rent will always go up but homes get paid off,' said Tim Beary, Chairman of the Board, Arlington Board of REALTORS.

Lunch will be provided and attendees are encouraged register online in order to win door prizes. Activities will be available for children ages 6 and up.
