Chase, one of the nation's leading home lenders, returns to Houston with its Legacy of Homeownership Tour to help consumers learn how to become long-term homeowners.

Now in its second year and with returning lead sponsor Freddie Mac, the Legacy of Homeownership Tour will be in Houston on May 31, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Reliant Center. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required at

The one-day seminar is designed to show African-Americans how to establish and preserve their legacies through homeownership. It includes informational workshops, access to community resources and one-on-one consultations with mortgage professionals.

"At Chase, we know that helping people make good financial decisions will increase long-term homeownership," said Pablo Sanchez, home lending senior executive at Chase. "Providing consumers with practical advice lays the groundwork for a legacy of homeownership that can last for generations."

The Houston event will culminate with a keynote from Michelle Singletary, The Washington Post columnist and financial expert, on sound, legacy-building investment strategies.

"For the second consecutive year, we are proud to support the Legacy of Homeownership Tour giving individuals the knowledge to make informed decisions when considering homeownership," said Craig Nickerson, vice president of expanding markets for Freddie Mac. "A home is often a familys largest investment and their legacy. This educational opportunity will help families prepare to buy a home, choose the right mortgage and understand the financial commitment. Knowledge is key to successful long-term homeownership."

Workshop topics will include:

• Renting vs. Owning: What to consider as you plan your purchase
• Real Estate 101: What homebuyers should know before they purchase
• Understanding Loan Options: What every lender should tell you
• Protecting Your Financial Future: How to work with your lender

Guests will receive lunch and can enter a raffle for prizes including a Dell laptop.

The Tour kicked-off in Chicago earlier in May and will make stops in New York on June 14 and Washington, D.C. on July 12. Singletary also will be the keynote speaker in Washington, D.C., and Glinda Bridgforth, bestselling author of "Girl, Get Your Money Straight!" and "Girl, Make Your Money Grow" will be the keynote in New York City.

National tour sponsors include Dell and Freddie Mac.
