Almost 200 local employees arrived at the Deckers Rotunda after work last Wednesday for an evening that included learning about the home buying process, networking with real estate professionals, and eating delicious tacos.
Coastal Housing Partnership’s Home Buying Fair brought in professionals from both Santa Barbara and Ventura counties to help guide local employees on their paths to homeownership. Among the dozens of vendors were lenders, real estate agents, and new residential construction representatives. Tacos and cookies served as an easy ice breaker for prospective homeowners to chat with a range of exhibitors and find the right lender, real estate agent, or new residential community for them. In addition to networking in the beautiful Deckers Rotunda, attendees had the opportunity to learn from three educational panels throughout the event.
About 90% of attendees are planning on purchasing a home in the next year, and more than 90% of them say they left the event feeling more prepared for the process. One vendor said it was the best Home Buying Fair yet. Maybe it’s us, maybe it’s the tacos, but we hope to see you at a Home Buying Fair in 2019!
