National Homeownership Month

National Homeownership Month

June 2017 was National Homeownership Month, a time to reflect on the impact owning a home has on household wealth, neighborhood stability, and our nation’s broader economic health. On June 1, 2017, Secretary Ben Carson and a diverse group of experts discussed the history and the outlook of this central foundation of ‘The American Dream.” Our panel of researchers and housing professionals discussed the recent housing crisis and its impact on consumer behavior with a focus on the challenges millennial purchasers face as they enter the market in greater numbers.

Emmy-award winning CNBC Real Estate Reporter Diana Olick moderated the discussion with experts from the Mortgage Bankers Association, the Center for NYC Neighborhoods, Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies, and National Association of Realtors.
