  Repairers of the breach  

REALTORS® playing vital role in community efforts to acknowledge, repair damage of past

Homeownership is the largest single contributor to intergenerational wealth for American families. But it has not been accessible to all Americans on equal terms. More than a half-century after passage of the federal Fair Housing Act, there remains a 30-percentage-point homeownership gap between white and Black Americans-the same as in 1968, the year the act was adopted. Black Americans own one-tenth the wealth of white Americans, despite earning, on average, about 60% of white Americans' income.

There is a clear line from the overtly racist policies of the past to today's inequities. While the 1968 Fair Housing Act outlawed discrimination, it provided little remedy for the decades of harm that preceded it. Industry efforts are curtailing present-day discrimination, but they don't reverse the effects of historic practices that denied Blacks homeownership, destroyed Black wealth, and prevented the transfer of wealth through generations.

  FHFA extends mortgage forbearance for multifamily owners  

The Federal Housing Finance Agency announced last week that it will grant more time in forbearance to qualifying multifamily property owners. The program was set to expire at the end of the month but has now been extended until June 30.

Property owners with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed multifamily mortgages can enter new or modified forbearance if they are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Property owners who take part in the relief program are required to inform tenants in writing about tenant protections available during their forbearance as well as during the repayment period. They also must agree not to evict tenants for not paying rent while the property is in forbearance. Click here to read the full article.
