About Us

In partnership with the Miami-Dade County Department of Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD), Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida (NHSSF) is kicking off the first Virtual Homeowner & Homebuyer Expo 2021 – Housing the Future Together!

We have tailored the Expo into two learning tracks:

  • Future Homebuyers
  • Current Homeowners

Upon registering for the Expo, you will be able to choose which educational sessions to attend. If you can’t make a session, you will be able to “save” them in your swag bag and watch the recorded session at your convenience*.

We saved the best detail for last, ATTENDANCE IS FREE!

* Registration for the Expo will give you access to the virtual venue up to 30 days after the day of the event. You can revisit the booths and watch any sessions of interest that you may have missed.


Virtual Exhibit Hall

The Homeowner & Homebuyer Expo 2021 will have a Vendors’ Exhibit Hall, where Miami-Dade County residents will have the opportunity to virtually “visit” the booths of more than 25 exhibitors and gather information about their products and services.

At the booths, you’ll find many valuable resources that will equip you to make informed consumer decisions, from looking to buying a house; considering what is the best homeowner’s insurance; to what refinance options are out there in the market.

Through a real-time chat feature activated at each exhibitor’s booth, you will have the ability to have a personal “meet-and-greet” with housing counselors, real estate agents, insurance providers, loan officers, credit repairs experts, and many other specialists in the housing industry.


Two Learning Programs

Future Homebuyers
Applying for down payment assistance or using community lending programs? If you are a first-time homebuyer, you can register for one of the certificated Homebuyer Workshops. The Homebuyer Workshops are being offered in English, Spanish, and Creole.

Homebuyers who want to gain helpful information on navigating a competitive housing market can participate in the Realtors or Lenders’ Roundtables. Here you will hear from industry experts about the best opportunities that are currently available.

Current Homeowners
If you already own your home, the Expo will offer educational sessions on how to “go green” in your home and how you can save money while doing it! You will be able to attend several demonstrations on solar panel installations, interior gardening, and the efficient use of water at home. More details to come.
