Detroit Rally Planned to Urge Awareness of Homeownership


WEST BLOOMFIELD — Building Industry Association of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan Association of Home Builders and the National Association of Homebuilders are joining forces to host a major mid-summer Rally for Homeownership where federal, state and local officials will join with Michigan citizens to highlight the need for pro housing policies at the local, state and federal levels. 

The event is open to everyone who is interested and will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 20 at Gardenview Estates Development, 16500 Tireman on Joy Road and the Southfield Freeway in Detroit. As many as 700 citizens, legislators and policy makers are expected to attend.

“It is important that we revive the housing market, create jobs and spur growth for the entire U.S. economy,” said Michael Stoskopf, CEO of BIA. “The home is central to American life, and homeownership is a cherished ideal for most families.”

Legislative and regulatory proposals now under consideration by government policy makers would greatly harm homeowners, homebuyers, the housing market and the nation’s economy.
