Bay Area Affordable Homeownership Alliance

How Can Realtors Help AHOP Succeed?

  • AHOP Outreach – The extensive promotional activities AHOP is involved with will help increase the amount of prospective buyers looking to purchase a home in Antioch
  • Educate and Counsel Buyers – One of AHOP‘s primary focuses is on promoting and delivering financial literacy and homebuyer education and counseling to homebuyers. These activities will benefit realtors.
    • Educated homebuyers are better prepared to begin the home purchase process.  In most case, one of the largest deterrents to homeownership - fear, has been addressed.
    • Making more information available to homebuyers facilitates more efficient and streamlined transactions.  This may help expedite transactions.
    • Educated buyers will know when they can effectively commence their home purchase activities, not wasting valuable time for the Realtor.
  • Direct Homebuyers to Realtors – AHOP outreach and educational components will help direct ready able willing buyers to realtors.  All AHOP applicants are screened to determine their capacity to purchase a home.  Applicants that possess the financial wherewithal to commence their home purchase process will be directed to secure their loan approval and subsidies and to start working with a Realtor.
