I wrote and narrated this 14 minute video introducing the concept of Shared Equity Homeownership and profiling several leading programs and their residents.
Based on interviews with dozens of practitioners from around the country, this guidebook is intended to help local government policymakers to develop stronger partnerships with local Community Land Trusts to develop and monitor permanently affordable homeownership units.
I developed this training curriculum for the National Community Land Trust Academy based on research that John Davis and I conducted for a companion report issued by the Lincoln Institute for Land Policy.
This 15 minute video presentation looks more closely at local affordable homeownership programs from the point of view of asset building. Can affordable ownership programs be seen as asset building strategies? How do they compare with traditional ownership?
