Addressing the gap in minority homeownership

Brena Nath
HW+ Managing Editor

Minority homeownership, which is the focus of this issue, has a lot of moving parts to it. And while there’s much more impacting the growth of minority homeownership than what can fit into the following pages, this issue highlights some of the biggest challenges in increasing homeownership levels, along with ways the industry can band together to create meaningful change. 

As Madisyn Rhone, manager of government and industry relations at Enact, explains in her commentary on page 22, the current homeownership gap between Black and white households is wider than before the Fair Housing Act was passed in 1968. Then, this month’s feature that starts on page 44 dives into the topic even more and investigates the role of the appraiser in housing discrimination, unpacking how the issue goes back decades before federal redlining. 

Also in this issue, we welcome our inaugural list of 2021 Marketing Leaders. This foundational first group of honorees met all the ups and downs of 2021 head-on and created programs, strategies and campaigns that will create brand loyalty that lasts well beyond 2021.
