South Coast Event Saturday to Help Residents Become Homeowners

4th Annual Homwonership Fair today from 11 am to 3 pm

If you’ve been thinking about buying a home, there’s an event on the South Coast Saturday which may help you.

The Ventura County Community Development Corporation is holding its annual Homeownership Fair at its facility on Sturgis Road in Oxnard.

"Information is powerful," said VCCDC Executive Director Bertha Garcia. "And the more knowledge and information you gain, the better choices you're going to make when it comes to owning your home, which is one of the biggest assets we have as homeowners."

This free resource fair that takes place from 11 am until 3 pm includes information about down payment assistance and loan programs, credit, affordability and other elements of homeownership. The event will also include a Credit Myth Busters workshop.

Since 2001, the VCCDC has been working to increase home ownership in underserved communities of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
