A Successful Turnout for Recent North Country Homebuyer Fair

Lancaster, NH April 2023. AHEAD in partnership with New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority recently hosted a successful homebuyer fair in Lancaster, NH.  This one day event, held on Saturday, April 1st was well attended by prospective homebuyers and gave them an opportunity to visit with area lenders and realtors. The last North Country Homebuyer Fair was held in 2019, as the COVID-19 pandemic haulted this event for the past 3 years. AHEAD's Director of Programming and Communications, Samantha Marshall, shared "We were very excited to host this event for the first time since March 2019. It has always been a well-attened event and is a unique experience for homebuyers to meet and learn from a room full of industry professionals. This year was especially exciting since it was the first time we hosted the event in Coos County. It was a great event!"

AHEAD would like to thank the following organizations for participating in this years' event: Badger Peabody Smith Realty, Bank of NH, Caron's Gateway Real Estate, Coldwell Banker Lifestyles, Meredith Village Savings Bank, NH Community Loan Fund, NH Housing Finance Authority, NorCom Mortgage , Point to Point Realty, Preferred Properties, St. Mary's Bank, Union Bank and Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank. 

In addition to visiting with area lenders and realtors, AHEAD provided attendees the opportunity to learn about the benefits of their homebuyer education course titled, "Secrets of Homebuying". This HUD-approved workshop provides participants with an overview of the entire homebuying process and helps prepare and inform homebuyers for an increasingly competitive market. Studies conducted by HUD, have proven that those individuals who complete a HUD-approved course are 30% less likely to ever default on their mortgage. The next workshop will be held in Littleton, NH in May 6th, sponsored by Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank.  This workshop satisfies the education requirement for the Equity Builder Program and Housing our Workforce Grant, two generous grant opportunities provided by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston. Pre-registration is required for this workshop, please visit homesahead.org/workshops to register.
