Session Title: New Headwinds to Homeownership: Policies to Support the American Dream
Homeownership is at the heart of the American Dream and has historically been seen as one of the greatest opportunities to build wealth for working-class families and individuals. Will proposed changes to the current tax code destabilize homeownership? With aging in place and competition from all-cash buyers, will inventory continue to decline? How do practitioners bring new policies to support affordable homeownership, i.e., what does the “new” American Dream look like? This session will examine current and future threats to homeownership and how to protect the American Dream.
