The 2020 Northern Virginia Housing Expo launches June 1, 2020, as a free, virtual event for the entire month of June. The event was originally scheduled for one day in April in Sterling, but was rescheduled and reimagined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The virtual experience, geared to first-time homebuyers and renters, will replicate the three key aspects of the housing expo: an exhibit hall with dozens of exhibitors, free online workshops for first-time homebuyers and renters and personal financial counseling sessions. 

Beginning June 1, 2020, the 2020 Northern Virginia Housing Expo will open the virtual exhibit hall as well as the online registration for workshops and the financial counseling sessions.

The virtual workshops will be held Saturdays throughout the month of June, beginning June 6, 2020, and continuing every Saturday through June 27, 2020. They will be live-streamed at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and replayed on Facebook at 2:00 and 4:00 p.m.  The workshops will focus on first-time homebuyer programs in Loudoun and the other jurisdictions, market overviews, being ready to buy, rental assistance programs, and understanding and improving credit scores. The financial counseling sessions will also be available throughout the month of June.

The 10th Annual Northern Virginia Housing Expo is hosted by First Home Alliance in cooperation with the counties of Arlington, Prince William and Loudoun, the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church, as well as the Virginia Housing Development Authority.

Details about how to participate in the event are online at novahousingexpo.org. Resources geared toward homebuyers and renters in Loudoun County are online at loudoun.gov/housing.
