New Models for Affordable Homeownership

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 09:00 AM – 10:15 AM Pelican Concurrent Session
Open to All Attendees

First-time homeownership remains out of reach for many Millennials and working families due to constraints ranging from tighter credit boxes to diminishing supply of starter homes. At the same time, existing homeowners in struggling areas typically have few tools available to improve the property’s value. This session will highlight creative efforts by developers, lenders, and local governments to solve these and other affordable homeownership challenges.
