Did you know that June is National Homeownership Month? Why am I telling you in May? Because I want you to start preparing now. Seriously! Think about what you can set up this month to promote June Homeownership Month! I have a list of ideas below and in the video I made. Don't wait! BTW, email me your ideas and share what you are doing! I LOVE hearing about what you are doing!
Here are some ideas on how you can celebrate Homeownership Month.
Contact a Local Radio or News Station
Radio stations are always looking for local news. Contact your local stations and offer to host a series of programs during June to discuss key homeownership subjects such as advancements in home construction or green building techniques. Involve several members with different specialties to address the wide range of questions that callers may have.
Contact Your Local Newspapers
Newspapers are always looking for content ideas. Contact your newspaper and offer to write articles talking about homeownership in your community. Invite local builders and real estate agents to write articles about what they are seeing or working on. Create a special homeownership section.
Showcase Local Projects
Videotape successful and innovative housing developments in your area that are using new technologies or green building techniques. You could create a tour of local projects and invite local officials and media along to talk about what's happening in and around your community.
Host an Educational Event or Fair
Host a homeownership fair, workshop or seminar (in person or virtually). Partner with other industry leaders to discuss the state of housing in your community.
Showcase Community Projects
Participate in or organize a community service project. Help out or interview a local homeless or women's shelter. Host a donation drive or do something that benefits your community. Contact your local Habitat for Humanity, Rebuilding Together or Youth Build organization to contribute or showcase projects.
