This past weekend, the C. Larry Hoag Center for Real Estate and Finance held the third annual Southern California Home Ownership Day, making it the most successful run thus far in terms of attendance.

More than 200 people attended the free educational event, which featured more than 30 targeted sessions for maximizing real estate. These sessions were attended by those seeking home ownership, as well as home sellers, investors, home buyers and home owners, and were taught by real estate experts.

Topics that were covered included avoiding costly buyer mistakes, down payment assistance, VA loans, life after foreclosure, property management, load modifications, first time buyers and much more.

Sponsors of the OC Home Fair included the Hoag Center at Chapman University, The Orange County Register, the Young Professionals Network and the NeighborWorks Orange County.
