RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Finding a new home is not an easy task.

According to Sierra Nevada Realtors, which is a realtor association serving the six counties in Northern Nevada, 611 homes were sold across the region in March, which is down nearly 21.9 percent from last year’s 782 home closings.

To improve these numbers, the Sierra Nevada Realtors’ I.D.E.A Committee is hosting a bilingual seminar to educate and diversify homeownership. The I.D.E.A Committee focuses on increasing homeowners within all communities.

Jorge Montoya is the chairman of the committee and, as a homeowner himself, he understands the challenges of the home buying process.

“People can expect to be inspired and educated about home ownership,” said Montoya. “You see, homeownership can sometimes be an intimidating process. We are going to break it down in a way that is easy to understand, and you know what to expect.”

There will be a variety of topics discussed, such as finding comfort in the home buying process, credit repairs, loan programs and home insurance.

The “New Year, New Home” bilingual seminar will be held on Saturday, April 22, at Sierra Nevada Realtors location in Carson City. This event is free to the public and children are allowed to attend. You can RSVP by sending an email to Cristal@SNR.Realtors or calling (775) 823-6233.
