DuPage Homeownership Center is Now H.O.M.E DuPage

HOME DuPage - Home Ownership, Money, Education

New logo for HOME DuPage – formerly DHOC

Do you remember when DHOC had a secret?

The DuPage Homeownership Center (DHOC) was promoting a “big reveal” of their secret on February 8, 2017.

The “secret” has been revealed and it is a new name and new look for the organization.

H.O.M.E. DuPage

Formerly known as The DuPage Homeownership Center, it will now be doing business as H.O.M.E DuPage, Inc. effective February 9, 2017.

Why H.O.M.E. DuPage?  Simply stated, DHOC needed something that reflects what they do best and sets them apart from those who might have similar services, but not exactly.

Therefore the new name reflects these service points: Home. Ownership. Money. Education. DuPage

The creation of a new identity has been a year in the making. During this time, a task force of members of the Board of Directors and the Advancement Committee have been working to roll out this new change.

The goal is to increase visibility in the community with an identity that more effectively states who they are and what they do.

Please update your records as of February 9, 2017 – DHOC goes H.O.M.E.!

What You Need to Know About Radon Video

What you need to know about Radon and your new home

Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas formed by the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil.

According to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA), “It’s estimated more than 1,100 people in Illinois develop radon-related lung cancer each year.”

The IEMA and the American Lung Association in Illinois (ALAIL) have released a new video to help educate home buyers and real estate professionals on the dangers of radon and raise awareness about the issue in order to reduce radon exposure.

Watch the embedded three-minute video below to learn more about radon and how to prevent exposure.

Illinois Radon Awareness Act

The Illinois Radon Awareness Act became state law on Jan. 1, 2008. The act requires home sellers to provide anyone buying a residential property in Illinois with information about the dangers of radon exposure and that radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the second leading cause overall.

“This video is a quick, simple way for real estate agents and home sellers to provide this important required information.” says IEMA Director James K. Joseph.

The law does not require that sellers or for buyers to test homes for radon before sale. It also does not require any radon remediation work for homes be completed if test results show potentially high levels of radon.

However, if a radon test has been conducted on the home, the Illinois Radon Awareness Act requires sellers to share the results of a radon test with potential buyers.

This new video from the IEMA continues to help spread information about radon to the public. In January, governor Bruce Rauner declared Radon Action Month to encourage Illinois residents to test their homes for radon.

For more information visit the IEMA Radon Information website.

For radon information by telephone you can call (800) 325-1245 (Information Line) or to speak to an IEMA Radon Program staff member call (217) 782-1325.
