Myth Busting: Shared Equity Homeownership in Weak Market Cities
Event Type: Virtual
Topic(s): Local Analysis, Parcel Data & Neighborhood Markets, State/National Analysis
When: August 22, 2019
Time: 12 PM ET
Grounded Solutions Network will discuss the role of shared-equity homeownership models in weak or mixed-market cities and debunk three myths: Aren’t homes already affordable in weak markets? Shouldn’t we be focusing on building household wealth rather than preserving affordability? Aren’t there more urgent community needs to address? Sneak preview: shared-equity homeownership, a model of creating and preserving resale-restricted homeownership opportunities for low-income households, can be an important tool for any city that wants to advance equity and inclusion.
This webinar will include an introduction to shared-equity homeownership and how the model can be used to address the unique challenges that weak and mixed-market cities and neighborhoods face. Beth Sorce, Director of Capacity Building at Grounded Solutions Network, will lead the discussion and feature lessons learned from working with cities and nonprofit organizations across the country.
