According to the Montana Association of Realtors (MAR), The Home Ownership Matters event held March 30, 2011 was a success, and "REALTORS® from across the state traveled to Helena to be a part of the festivities. NAR’s Home Ownership Matters bus stopped at MAR’s office, and with the bus and the state capitol as a backdrop, several speakers spoke about the importance of Home Ownership to Montana communities and the state as a whole.
"State legislators, as well as representatives from Senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester, were also at the event. MAR President Ronda Tompers would like to thank everyone who helped bring the NAR Home Ownership Matters bus to Montana and for everyone who traveled to Helena to help make the day a great success."
On Wednesday, March 30, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Home Ownership Matters bus will be making a stop in Helena, Montana!
The Home Ownership Matters bus, which will be parked in the MAR parking lot from 10am-2pm on March 30, 2011, is an extension of NAR's Home Ownership Matters campaign which teaches about the issue and provides re-sources to help you spread the word about the benefits of homeownership in your community.
Montana Association of realtors (MAR) is planning to host several guest speakers including Helena Mayor Jim Smith, who will talk about the partnership (with an NAR grant) to work on the Housing Needs Assessment for the Community and emphasize how important home owner-ship is to the quality of life in Helena.
There will be a REALTOR who talks about the benefits of the career as well as a first time Montana homes buyer who talks about the wonderful, life-altering decision to purchase a home.
Various legislators and MAR members will be on hand - not to mention free hot dogs and cake! So come on over to Helena to help celebrate how HOME OWNERSHIP MATTERS! (If you get caught wearing your "R" pin, you might be rewarded with a $25 gas card too!) Thanks to Montana Realtors for this information.
