Ruidoso’s First Annual Housing Fair, September 7, 2019.

Find out how to go from renter to homeowner at Ruidoso’s First Annual Housing Fair on September 7, 2019, at the Ruidoso Convention Center.

The availability of Workforce Housing is a growing concern in the Village of Ruidoso and in surrounding areas. This has become a major inconvenience and it is affecting the local economy. The Village of Ruidoso recognizes this issue and would like to help.

We are excited to announce the first annual Housing Fair. This event scheduled for September 7, 2019 at the Ruidoso Convention Center will introduce people to the advantages of owning a home and help them realize just how easy it is. Research shows that owning a home has distinct advantages over renting, especially when it comes to building your net worth, equity and providing a stable environment to raise a family. Many people don’t even realize they are qualified to buy. We want to help them realize their potential by providing the opportunity for State/Federal Agencies, Local Lenders, Realtors, Builders, and Non-Profit Agencies to showcase the resources available to assist more New Mexicans in becoming homeowners. Our vendors will provide information in the areas of USDA programs, HUD Programs, NM Mortgage Finance Authority Programs, HEROS Program, and resources available for first time homeowners, credit repair and down payment assistance.

We hope you will join us for this free event and share this information with anyone who may be interested in learning more about becoming a homeowner. There will also be fun family activities and a barbecue lunch for all who attend.

For more information, please contact the Community Development Department (575-258-6999) at the Village of Ruidoso.
