Last week the local real estate board hosted a real estate agent fair. Imagine this! Hundreds of licensed agents all under the same roof at the same time. Generally, I enjoy the fair because it's an opportunity to learn what is new in the market place. This year's event seemed rather bland. Most of the exhibitors were banks and mortgages companies and their message, loud and clear, was we're still in business.
I did pick up some updated information about the Monroe County Homeownership Program. It is a program created by Catholic Charities and includes education and financial assistance for individual and families with limited income. The organization provides credit repair and budgeting counseling as well as a match savings program. For more information, give me a call at 585-756-7457 or an e-mail.
