Massachusetts REALTORS® Provide Key to Affordable Housing
The REALTOR® Association of Pioneer Valley was awarded the “Ambassador for Cities” award from the National Association of REALTORS® for helping prospective home buyers find affordable housing in Massachusetts.
The association is a leader in the public-private partnerships that provide affordable housing programs for Springfield and Holyoke, MA.
REALTORS® helped arm Massachusetts home buyers with information and contacts for the home-buying process by creating two local websites: BuySpringfieldNow.org and BuyHolyokeNow.com.
The REALTOR® Association of Pioneer Valley also provides training and educational opportunities to its members, informing them about new affordable housing programs and solutions to common hurdles to homeownership.
These local REALTORS® then serve as knowledge guides to prospective home buyers, directing them to programs and supportive local vendors.
