Attendees will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with professionals, including realtors, lenders, housing counselors, and real estate attorneys to address questions and provide guidance. The event will also feature youth activities, food trucks, free credit reports, housing counselors, door prizes & giveaways.

Make plans to join the department’s panel presentation entitled, “What to Do with Big Mama’s House: Rental Options for Inheritance Properties,” featuring panelists Onaje Barnes and Corey Franklin with the Harris County Housing Authority. The session will focus on how to turn inheritance properties into short-term rentals/Air B&Bs, how to become a Housing Authority landlord, and renovation financing opportunities.
