From renters to new buyers to long-time homeowners, the 2012 Local Housing Options Team (LHOT) Housing Expo provides one-stop shopping for an array of services ranging from maintaining a residence or remodeling to financing and insurance.
The free event is taking place Thursday, Feb. 2 from 12-5 p.m. at The Edgewood building, located on the Million Dollar Highway behind the Subway restaurant in St. Marys.
"We were very pleased with last year's event, especially since that was out first year. We had a steady crowd all day," said LHOT Chairperson Sarah Grunthaner of Cameron/Elk Mental Health Mental Retardation.
"One of our missions is to serve the people we typically do not serve daily, such as the first-time homeowner, the young adults moving back to the area or homeowners needing modifications," said Linda Thompson of Cameron/Elk Mental Health Mental Retardation, an expo committee member.
