Change in venue benefits Keys to Home Ownership Festival
The second annual Keys to Home Ownership Festival was held last weekend at Lincoln Park, which gave the festival an established and highly visible location. The change in venue was a positive one, giving the kids plenty of room to play and providing an indoor location for educational seminars in the barn at the park.
“I was extremely pleased with the quality of the information presented in the classes,” said Amy Case with the Grand Junction Housing Authority. “Our instructors were all top notch housing experts and were happy to spend as much time needed with attendees to answer their questions.”
In addition to the free seminars and entertainment for the kids, there were informational booths with representatives from several different components of the housing and real estate industry, giving attendees an opportunity to chat with and learn from real estate agents, title company representatives, lenders, home inspectors and other real estate service providers.
“The Realtor Association stressed to all participants in the planning that this was to be a free educational for the public without any sales pitches,” says Lori Wood, public relations chair for the Grand Junction Area REALTOR Association. “I am happy that we accomplished that goal and provided an enjoyable event as a gift to the community.”
