The Green Impact Zone is partnering with the city of Kansas City, Mo., the Bank of Kansas City, Capitol Federal Savings Bank and U.S. Bank to host the July edition of the Green Impact Zone Urban Homes Tour. The tour will commence at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 21, 2012. Buses will depart at 9:30 a.m. from the Green Impact Zone Office located at 4600 Paseo.

The tour is designed to showcase homes for sale in the Green Impact Zone and to connect interested homebuyers to resources.

A series of workshops following the tour will include a session on how to purchase the house you desire. Participants will also learn more about the KC Dream Home Program, a program sponsored by the city of Kansas City which promises to forgive 30 percent of loans up front for homebuyers. Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with potential lenders.

The Urban Homes Tour is a great way to learn about buying affordable homes in Kansas City’s urban core. Participants will learn how to save for a home, and learn the advantages of owning instead of renting. If you are interested in attending, call (816) 936-8803 to register.
