Hundreds of Housing Industry members wearing bright yellow shirts gathered at the Great Minnesota Get Together on Monday. Members of Housing First Minnesota, the Minnesota REALTORS, the St. Paul Association of REALTORS (SPAAR), and the Minneapolis Association of REALTORS (MAAR) spent the day discussing the importance of homeownership and the work of the industry, networking with their peers and partaking in a fun-filled scavenger hunt.
Additionally, members spent time spreading the homeownership message with elected officials and potential elected officials. The Minnesota REALTORS also highlighted the newly formed First-Time Homebuyer Savings Account that was signed into law during the 2017 Legislative Session.
