June is National Homeownership Month

National Homeownership Week began in 1995, which was a strategy of the administration under President Bill Clinton to increase homeownership across America.  

In 2002, President George W. Bush expanded the period of observance from a week to the entire month of June.

Here are some ideas on how you can celebrate Homeownership Month


Host a Community Homeownership Forum 

Organize a housing forum (in person or virtually) to provide an opportunity for public and industry leaders to examine and discuss the state of the housing situation in your community. Ask experts such as a mortgage banker, an economist from the local college, and a Realtor to speak. Invite the media and the public to attend.


Contact Your Local Chamber of Commerce

Let your local Chamber know that it is National Homeownership Month and offer to host a webinar or event talking about homeownership in your community.  You could write an article for their newsletter or find out how else you can help them talk about the importance of homeownership. 


Interview a State Or Congressional Member

Contact your state representatives and ask if you can sit down and do a video interview with them talking about the state of the housing industry in your local area. 


Contact a Local Radio or News Station

Radio stations are always looking for local news.  Contact your local stations and offer to host a series of programs during June to discuss key homeownership subjects such as advancements in home construction or green building techniques. Involve several members with different specialties to address the wide range of questions that callers may have.
