Sterling, Va. – RealEstateRama – Renters and first-time buyers looking to live in Northern Virginia should plan to visit the 2023 Northern Virginia Housing Expo, a regional housing fair, at Dominion High School on April 1, 2023, from 10 am to 3 pm. The free public event, an initiative of local, state and federal housing agencies and other stakeholders, showcases both first time homeownership and rental opportunities and resources throughout Northern Virginia.  Visitors to this entirely free event can speak with experts in the exhibit hall, attend a variety of informational workshops and take advantage of individual financial coaching from certified volunteer coaches.

The expo is made possible thanks to a cooperative effort between representatives from Prince William, Fairfax, Arlington and Loudoun Counties; the Cities of Alexandria, Falls Church and Manassas Park; Virginia Housing; the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (DC Regional Office); Northern Virginia Association of Realtors®; and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. Laura K. Nickle, president of Communi-k, Inc., is the event manager; First Home Alliance of Woodbridge, Va., is the nonprofit partner for the event.

The expo will feature workshops and exhibits designed to educate attendees about getting and staying creditworthy, first-time buyer programs, rental assistance programs, Virginia’s mortgage relief program, senior housing options, and more. Upon arrival, visitors will be able to sign up for a financial coaching session with a trained volunteer from Britepaths, a Fairfax County nonprofit.
