HYP held its first ever homebuyers seminar on September 15, 2009 to highlight the convenience and sophistication that city living can offer. The program featured presentations from realtors and developers, including Riverview Manor, to showcase for-sale housing in the City of Harrisburg. A second panel, including mortgage, insurance and home improvement experts, were on hand to discuss the home-buying process.
Guests also had the opportunity to tour the homes and amenities at Riverview Manor.
Thank you to our generous sponsors Green Street Properties; Andrew Lick, RSR Realtors; and Riverview Manor.
