City of Milwaukee will hold a Spring Homeownership FairSaturday, April 28th, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Italian Conference Center, 631 E. Chicago Street.
The Spring Homeownership Fair will offer some great homes for sale by the City of Milwaukee for as little as $5,000.
In addition residents can learn about hundreds of Bank-owned and City-owned modestly priced foreclosed properties that are currently available for sale – from “fixer-uppers” to fully renovated homes.
Tours of a number of open houses from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The list of open houses/addresses will be provided at the event only.
Own for less than renting – monthly loan payments may be as little as $400 for a renovated home.
The City of Milwaukee, Lenders, Realtors and Homeownership Counseling Agencies will be available to answer all of your questions.
Find out if you qualify for a forgivable loan of up to $30,000 toward the purchase/rehabilitation of a foreclosed property.
If you have not prequalified for a mortgage, meet with available lenders to review your options.
Attend workshops and learn how to purchase from realtors, lenders counseling agencies and City representatives (9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.).
Some properties will be available on a first come, first serve basis to prequalified homebuyers. Get a head start on prequalifying before the event!
