National Homeownership Month Event in Dallas

The key to #UnlockingHomeownership for more Americans is prioritizing solutions that will put more affordable homes on the market.

Recently, The Alliance partnered with Axios to lead a conversation in Dallas on equity and affordability in the housing market.

Homebuyers across the country are facing historically low housing supply coupled with high prices and a competitive market. Our conversation with industry experts focused on solutions that will put more affordable homes on the market in Dallas and other metro areas that are grappling with acute housing shortages.

Some highlights from the event include:

🗝️ Benefits of Homeownership: during National Homeownership Month and always, we recognize the value of homeownership for building wealth and strengthening communities. As I noted in Dallas, “homeownership represents independence and financial stability.” The Alliance supports a range of policies that can unlock more access to homeownership and more value for current owners.

🗝️ The Key to Improving Housing Affordability: solutions exist to put more affordable homes on the market to address housing supply and affordability challenges head-on. Bipartisan legislation like the Neighborhood Homes Investment Act would create 500,000 available homes to help close the supply-demand gap for moderately priced homes. Take action to make this happen today.

🗝️ Ending Home Equity Theft: When an individual falls behind on their property taxes, no matter how small the debt, home equity theft allows state and local governments to seize the property and keep the full sale amount, beyond what they are owed in taxes, interest and penalties.  The only way to end home equity theft is by changing the laws that allow this practice in the 12 states and D.C. where it remains legal—learn more.
