Anyone looking for an affordable place to live in Northern Virginia should plan to visit the 2016 Northern Virginia Housing Expo, hosted by Fairfax-based nonprofit AHOME Foundation in cooperation with the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA), Prince William, Arlington, Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax and Falls Church, and the Town of Herndon.

Admission is free.

The area’s only regional housing expo showcases both homeownership and rental opportunities and resources throughout Northern Virginia. The event will be held from 10 am until 3 pm and will feature workshops, exhibits and free one-on-one credit counseling.

The sixth annual expo is designed to educate attendees about location options, being prepared for buying or renting, understanding and improving credit scores and improving their financial literacy and personal finance habits. Visit the event web site for the growing list of exhibitors and the schedule of the free workshops.

The expo, whose location rotates annually throughout Northern Virginia, is being held at Freedom High School in Woodbridge, Virginia, located at 15201 Neabsco Mills Road, between I-95 and Jefferson Davis Highway.

The event is produced by a collaborative effort of the aforementioned housing authorities along with representatives of the banking and mortgage industry, and is managed by Laura Nickle, president of Leesburg-based Communi-k, Inc. Past expos have been recognized with a prestigious award from the Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND) for “best government initiative.”

More information about the expo is available at www.NoVaHousingExpo.org; you can also follow the Northern Virginia Housing Expo on Facebook and Twitter to receive event updates.

The event is made possible by a variety of sponsorships, including funding from platinum sponsors Capital One, the Prince William County Office of Housing and Community Development and the Virginia Housing Development Authority, as well as gold sponsor Northern Virginia Association of Realtors®, and silver sponsor George Mason Mortgage.
