Have you ever thought about home ownership but need help navigating the process? The Village of Park Forest is hosting a Housing Fair on Saturday, May 6 at 10 a.m. at Village Hall, to help residents interested in buying homes.
Park Forest Community Relations Coordinator Evelyn Randle, who is coordinating the event, said it is a one-stop shop for those considering buying a new home.
"Whether they are ready now or want to seek out information on how to become ready, all those resources will be on hand Saturday," Randle said. "Loan officers, banks, down payment assistance, and so forth. Even if they are a current homeowner and have problems, they can seek information from the provided resources."
Randle encourages residents to learn more about the many advantages of home ownership at the event.
"It's one of the best investments they will make in life. It allows them to pay themselves versus others," Randle said. "They can build equity, create a legacy and make something their own."
A house tour that was previously planned as part of the Housing Fair event will be reschedule.
Park Forest’s Village Hall is located at 350 Victory Drive.
