The City of Danville’s Division of Housing and Development is partnering with area agencies to hold a housing event to provide information for prospective homebuyers, renters, and sellers.
Called the Danville Area Housing Extravaganza, the event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 26, at the Danville Farmers’ Market community room, 629 Craghead St. Admission is free.
Sessions will be held on new housing developments, available rental properties, lending programs, tips for renters, fair housing, and financial literacy.
“The Danville Area Housing Extravaganza will be a great event for everyone who is interested in buying or renting a home in Danville and Pittsylvania County,” said Susan McCulloch, division director of housing and development for the City of Danville. “They will learn more about the programs available, options on the horizon, and the first steps in buying a new home.”
The event is a follow-up to the 2022 Southern Virginia Housing Summit, which detailed the need for additional housing opportunities.
The partnering agencies for the Danville Area Housing Extravaganza are the Dan River Region Association of Realtors, Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority, Danville Neighborhood Development Corporation, and Pittsylvania County.
Vendors in the housing purchasing and rental fields should contact McCulloch if interested in participating in the event. For more information, contact McCulloch at firstname.lastname@example.org or (434) 799-5260, ext. 3236.
