An invitation-only VIP TOUR is scheduled at 5 p.m. – 8 p.m., Thursday, November 5, 2009, at the all new Lucas County Arena.

The TOUR TOLEDO Preview of Toledo Homes is in conjunction with an exciting new City of Toledo Department of Neighborhoods initiative titled Dream To Own ®, a program designed to stabilize our neighborhoods and highlight the beauty of the Toledo lifestyle by offering down payment assistance and home improvement-funding for first-time homebuyers.

“The City of Toledo is very proud of this exciting new Dream To Own® program and our Department of Neighborhoods’ very first TOUR TO!EDO Preview of Homes. This program and preview gives everyone in our great city the opportunity to live the American dream and truly experience all that our community has to offer,” said Toledo Mayor Carleton S. Finkbiner.

The City of Toledo Department of Neighborhoods’ Dream To Own ® program is in conjunction with the Federal Government’s Neighborhood Stabilization Home Program, whereby more than $12 million is available to bring homes up to code, increase energy efficiency, and make them more affordable.

“Our Department’s TOUR TO!EDO Preview of Homes gives our officials a unique opportunity to showcase some of the great houses that are available right now in our city’s neighborhoods. We can help home buyers who thought it impossible to own a home, learn how to navigate financing, explain the tax breaks currently available and help them to achieve the American dream of home ownership so that it no longer is a dream, but an actual reality right here in the city of Toledo,” said Kattie Bond, Director of the City of Toledo Department of Neighborhoods.

During the VIP Preview of TOUR TO!EDO Preview of Homes, vendors representing a wide variety of Toledo’s finest organizations and businesses will be on hand, including banks and credit unions to assist guests with special programs on home mortgages and financing options. Refreshments and food samples will also be served, and special guests and local leaders will be in attendance.
