10 Things We Love About Affordable Homeownership
Homestead Community Land Trust, in partnership with partners in the Homeownership Affinity Group of the Housing Development Consortium, has created a social media campaign to celebrate all the ways permanently affordable homeownership contributes to inclusive and vibrant communities.
The infographic below reminds people of many of the important benefits of homeownership. One, homeownership is one of the best means of building personal equity, and thus is a strategic tool to close the wealth gap. Two, permanently affordable homeownership is an effective displacement tool, giving affordability a permanent address in neighborhoods as they revitalize or gentrify.
Our thanks to Affinity Group Members Community Frameworks; Habitat for Humanity of Seattle-King County; Homesight; Housing Development Consortium; Office of Housing, City of Seattle; Parkview Services; and the WA Homeownership Resource Center for their contributions to this social media campaign.
