UW Home Improvement Fair 2015

Home Improvement Fair Coming to the HUB

When I became a homeowner just over a year ago, I knew home improvement would become part of my life. What I didn’t realize was that figuring out the best resources would take so much of my time. Where could I borrow tools in my neighborhood? Who should I hire? Where could I get green building supplies? If you’ve got questions like these, mark your calendar:

UW Home Improvement Fair

Thursday, April 9

10 a.m.-3 p.m.

HUB Lyceum, room 160

This no-pressure event will have refreshments and door prizes, including a Kindle Fire HD.

This is the 18th year for the fair. The theme is Spend Small, Save Big, so “each exhibitor is focused on providing the most affordable homeownership opportunities available.” Sounds good to me! There will also be homeownership resources for those thinking about buying in the future. See the full list of exhibitors here.

UW Benefits and HomeStreet have also partnered to bring you one-hour seminars on starting the homeownership journey. Here are a few that are coming up this spring…
