“We hope the upcoming homebuyer fair will help the community meets its mission to expand the availability of safe, clean, decent affordable housing throughout the Mississippi Delta region” explained Tracey Prince, Executive Director of BDT Housing Services Enterprise. “By providing affordable housing to the rural communities of the Delta, we can help meet their needs and help them achieve their goals,” she added. “The housing market had been inundated with new products and programs, all of which have different qualifications and conditions, so it’s important for families to come to events like this one and learn as much as possible,” according to Dr. Ben Mokry, Executive Vice President of MHC. “Low interest rates, grant programs, and down payment assistance are just some of the opportunities available to Mississippians interested in purchasing their own homes.
