More than 500 people attended Invest Atlanta’s HOUSE RULES 2018 Tour of Homes on Saturday, June 2 at Atlanta Technical College. Attendees gathered to tour available homes for sale in Capitol View, Sylvan Hills, and other southwest Atlanta neighborhoods near the Atlanta BeltLine.
For the past several years, the Invest Atlanta homeownership team has hosted an event in June to celebrate homeownership month, and to educate potential homebuyers about downpayment assistance and other incentives.
The focus of this year’s event was on home renovation. Invest Atlanta’s ATL Home Renovation Advantage incentive gives eligible homebuyers up to $10,000 toward the down payment and closing costs that is fully forgiven after living in the home for 5 years. (Find additional info here.)
Contractor and master carpenter Chip Wade, the former host of HGTV’s "Curb Appeal: The Block," led a do-it-yourself home renovation session for attendees.
His company Wade Works was one of many businesses and community partners who were there to share resources. Mortgage lenders, real estate agents, homebuyer education providers, and Invest Atlanta Homeownership Center specialists all provided information about how to achieve affordable, intown living with a home renovation loan.
Attendees were also able to drop in for an Invest Atlanta Homebuyer Q&A session. To RSVP for a future Q&A session, please visit our events page.
