The BUY NOW! Homeownership Fair is one day away! Thank you to all our Housing Opportunities Committee volunteers for organizing three separate venues in Santa Cruz County. As REALTORS®, we are stewards of our communities and your efforts to help make our communities stronger is unprecedented!

The event is bringing together a wide variety of real estate issues facing our communities. A Q’s & A’s Panel of REALTORS® will be present at all three locations to help address the home buying and selling process, short sales, market conditions, the social benefits of home ownership, and Why NOW is the time to BUY!

Our Santa Cruz County Supervisors and the Mayor of Nogales will also be speakers at our venues! Live the Solution will provide presentations on Credit Repair & Retention, Southwest Housing Council will educate our community on fair housing laws, and Nogales Community Development will provide options on avoiding a foreclosure and will introduce assets development opportunities!

Our exhibitors consist of real estate agencies, lenders, title companies, home inspectors, and non-profits such as Chicanos Por La Causa. The Home Depot will also be part of the fair at the Nogales venue with a kids clinic and will provide literature on home maintenance tips!

The homeownership fair will be at the following locations:

  • Nogales  – Plaza Mariposa (Walgreens)
  • Rio Rico – Rio Rico Plaza (Garretts)
  • Tubac – Plaza De Anza (within the courtyard area)

The fair is an important step to ensure that Santa Cruz County neighborhoods remain vibrant, diverse, proud and progressive; where residents own their homes, and are rooted and actively engaged in the civic and political life of their neighborhoods.

BUY NOW! Is the motto being promoted by Southern Arizona REALTOR® Associations. 

Ask any of our local REALTORS® and the answer is the same….it’s a great time to buy a home in Santa Cruz Valley!

Now is the time to buy with historically low interest rates in over fifty years, amazingly affordable home prices and a wide variety of inventory.

Santa Cruz County Board of REALTORS® has joined forces with the Green Valley/Sahuarita Association of REALTORS® to hold a Homeownership Fair on Saturday, May 12, 2012 throughout Santa Cruz Valley. Our REALTOR® members, Affiliates and others will be setting up tents in Nogales, Rio Rico, Tubac and Sahuarita.  We envision a one stop place for buyers and sellers to talk to Realtors®, lenders, title companies, home inspectors, government entities, and non-profits. Presentations will be provided throughout the day to inform the community of the home buying and selling process.

Some lessons leave an impression that will last a lifetime.

Studies show that home ownership has a significant positive impact on educational achievement, civic participation, health and
overall quality of life. That’s why, for more than 100 years, REALTORS® have helped people find their piece of the American
Dream. Click on the link to find out how Home Ownership Benefits you and talk to an agent who is a REALTOR®, a member of the National Association of REALTORS®. Every market’s different, call a REALTOR® today.

For the first time in generations, the American dream of homeownership is being threatened. We need to keep housing first on the nation’s public policy agenda, because housing and home ownership issues affect all Americans.

The Santa Cruz County Board of REALTORS is committed to protecting homeownership for our local families and future generations.

NAR’s President-Elect Maurice Veissi, recently outlined the association’s recommendations for housing finance reform before the House Financial Services Subcommittee on International Monetary Policy and Trade.

Within Veissi’s outline he said the following, “For hundreds of years, this country has understood the value of homeownership because it helps families build wealth, supports community stability and contributes to our economy. We need to make sure that future housing policies continue to reinforce our long-standing value of homeownership, for the future of our families and our country,”
