Employer Assisted Housing Network Class Announced in Dayton

(Dayton, Ohio, April 6, 2012) The Employer Assisted Housing Network is reaching out to local real estate industry professionals to encourage a partnership between business owners and employees wishing to own their own home.

“Through the National Association of Realtors? Employer-Assisted Housing class, Realtors? are playing an important leadership role in building our communities and addressing the lack of affordable housing opportunities for working families around the Miami Valley area,” says Tammy Murphy, Certified NAR Trainer and professional with Prudential One, REALTORS?.

Murphy, along with a core team of real estate industry professionals, are working diligently in the Miami Valley to gain the much needed exposure to employers. Their efforts have brought the Employer Assisted Housing Network (EAH) to Dayton. The EAH will train real estate industry professionals on how to discuss and implement employer-assisted housing benefits for their employees. The training will take place during two events being held at the Dayton Area Board of Realtors (DABR), and an EAH Forum that will host speakers from the City of Dayton, NAR and participating local employers.

EAH benefits can include one-on-one housing counseling; financial assistance; or workshops for home buyers or owners, including foreclosure prevention workshops. “The EAH classes coming up are the first step,” Murphy says, “and we are moving forward with plans to expand the initiative here quickly.”

Real estate professionals can register for the classes through the DABR website, www.dabr.com, and other industry professionals will contact Tammy Murphy directly. NAR’s Housing Opportunity Program (www.realtor.org/housingopportunity) was created in 2002 to provide Realtors? with the tools and resources they need to promote housing opportunities in their community, in both the rental and homeownership sectors of the market. The program encourages local Realtor? associations to create initiatives aimed directly at increasing housing opportunities available to consumers, and making affordable housing more readily available in their communities.

The dates of the upcoming EAH educational opportunities at the DABR are April 26 and June 12, 2012. The EAH Forum will be held on July 16, 2012 at Sinclair Community College. For more information or to register to attend contact Tammy Murphy with Prudential One, REALTORS?, [email protected].
