ARE YOU HOC? Increasingly, housing costs in many areas exceed the financial reach of many low-to-moderate wage earners, such as service sector employees, entry-level staff and health personnel, as well as teachers, police, and firefighters. Also, as many REALTORS® and lenders know, minorities and new immigrants often fall victim to discrimination and predatory lending practices. There are financial programs and tools that can help address the problem of affordability and you can learn about them. Develop your knowledge and expertise to serve this important and growing market by taking the steps to become HOC. Housing Opportunity Certified REALTORS® are specially trained to receive customer inquiries on workforce and affordable housing finance programs for selected jurisdictions.
