Nearly 50 housing-oriented organizations came together on Saturday, Sept. 9 to laud the benefits of homeownership at the Second Annual Joliet Housing Expo in Joliet.
Real estate professionals, mortgage lenders, attorneys, title company representatives, insurance company representatives and home inspectors were on hand to answer questions and provide expertise on the home buying process. Additionally, representatives from the Joliet Public Library District, Rialto Square Theater, Will County Forest Preserve, City of Joliet and the YMCA attended to promote Joliet’s quality of life.
The Housing Expo was sponsored by the Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® through a National Association of REALTORS® Housing Opportunity Grant. The First Midwest Bank and Neighborhood Loans sponsored a portion of the marketing materials. Approximately 100 attendees learned about Joliet’s Down Payment Assistance Program and other homeownership incentives during a presentation from First Midwest.
Also attending and supporting the event were city officials, including Mayor Bob O’Dekirk, City Councilman Mike Turk and City Councilman Don “Duck” Dickinson.
