Two Chicago-Area REALTOR® Associations Host Housing Expo and Trolley Tour with Housing Opportunity Grant

June 2014

The City of Aurora, on the west side of Chicago, has been lauded as a highly livable city.  It has a strong down-payment assistance program, and plenty of affordable housing — yet a high percentage of the employees working in Aurora commute from elsewhere. The 15,000-member Mainstreet Organization of REALTORS® and the 1,500-member REALTOR® Association of the Fox Valley partnered with the city and local lending institutions to get the word out. They used a Housing Opportunity Grant from NAR to host a housing expo and trolley tour they called “Experience Aurora.” The positive results are already appearing!
