I cannot hear Ms. Marra anymore
Denise Wilson

Contract for Deed sound like Rent to Own contracts as it relate to defaulting on the payments.
Robin Leiter-White
01:06:14
Sell to black family to scare white families in to moving and selling cheap. The speculators turn around and sell the home to black families for higher price.
Robin Leiter-White
01:07:13
Or send in black person to walk through the neighborhood with a stroller to cause white flight.
Robin Leiter-White
01:07:49
Speculators making money off racism.
Scott McClaine
01:08:53
The big difference is that with blockbusting, they were creating fear that the values would drop because blacks moved into the area. this is different than now, when they are simply looking for people that are thinking from the old values.
Pamela Johnson
01:09:07
their homes for less?
Sarah Foote
01:09:20
I've heard of this happening, too, Robin. The strollers, I mean. I've also heard of sending in a Black person to shop at the neighborhoods' local grocery store a couple of times a week, to give the impression that "the neighborhood is turning".
Deborah Sampson-Fisk
01:10:13
We moved into a neighborhood in Midlothian VA in the Walton Park area. As soon as we moved in the neighbors on both sides moved out within 8 months.
Robin Leiter-White
01:13:07
How does the city pay the Glenns $20,000 for their home if they had no actual equity since they had bought on contract?
Agustin Rodriguez
01:13:17
With respect to concerns about a Seller not recouping full value for their home - this strikes me as a perfect opportunity to hire a qualified realtor. A good realtor will show their client comps and make the case for the sale of the property at a certain price.
Pamela Johnson
01:14:54
Is there any organization that looks for individuals who have valuable homes that may sell their homes for less than their value or do you have any suggestions on how to find and help these people?
Ramona Chapman
01:18:17
New Hill Development organization located in Charlottesville has an innovative program which assists families in knowing the value of their homes and how to price them if they want to sell...https://www.newhilldev.org/
Zania Morgan
01:18:52
Thanks for sharing, Ramona.
Jorge Laura
01:22:27
Or just go to ZILLOW, REDFIN, TRULIA, etc. and write your address, you will get a home price close to a good selling price.
Erica Holmes
01:23:39
This is a start....having the conversation that Virginia was built on racism. The 1902 constitution says it all.
Agustin Rodriguez
01:24:23
Who will fund the race-based downpayment assistance?
Joseph Waddy
01:24:38
Need more minority appraisers...I believe that the appraisers have played a significant role in depressing the value of homes owned by minorities
Jennifer Gonzalez
01:25:43
Ensuring that we all have equal access to information and resources makes a world of a difference when systemically Black families have been starved of opportunity to become Homeowners.
Yana Dunn
01:25:54
i am disabled but have been told that paying a morgage is cheaper than i pay for rent but yet i dont qualfy to buy a house.
Sarah Foote
01:26:00
White homebuyers need to remain cognizant of realty practices and the language that is used in describing gentrifying neighborhoods. Being complicit in these issues isn't okay, even if it means you can make more of a profit or move "strategically" into neighborhoods that are being flipped and changed (and denigrated in the process) to benefit you. Displacement of Black homeowners is happening all over, so be mindful if you're looking to buy.
Ramona Chapman
01:26:33
Economic Equity in the form of Reparations to African Americans, especially those whose ancestors were enslaved, included in the annual Federal and State budgets. This could be similar to what 576 Federally Recognized Native American Nations.
Scott McClaine
01:27:17
how would a person qualify for those robust funds?
Jorge Laura
01:27:38
โ€œHeirs propertyโ€ owners will be allowed additional time to pay delinquent taxes and to claim inherited property. This law is a recommendation from the Commission to Examine Racial Inequity in Virginia Law established by Governor Northam in 2019. HB 2165
Sarah Foote
01:27:46
Also, making sure that people who are buying or selling are not doing so in a vacuum. This isn't a color-blind process... because of the history of inequities behind purchasing power.
JULIA OCHIENG
01:28:05
The federal housing policy continues to perpetuate racial discrimination
Laura Dobbs
01:28:10
Good article on modern day blockbusting: https://housingmatters.urban.org/research-summary/pressure-sell-gentrification-reverse-blockbusting
Sarah Foote
01:29:52
(Thanks for the article, Laura)
Suzie Yeats
01:30:01
Home equity is typically tied to educational gains used from taking a loan against your home. I find this argument limits the fact that loans against your home also can be used to open your own small business - another avenue for prosperity.
Robin Leiter-White
01:32:08

thanks for this valuable convo

Pamela Johnson
02:16:04
What is the incentive for the majority to support equal access to housing and all of the percs that come with it?
Mariko Lewis
02:17:21
How do you think we can increase middle housing in single family zoned plots, while also ensuring that affordable housing is created when changing zoning laws?
Pamela Johnson
02:18:25
Thank you Heidi
Yana Dunn
02:20:10
are there any new laws being implemented to protect renters that have slum lords?
Erica Holmes
02:20:11
Hey Brandi!! Welcome baby!
Beckey Huddleston
02:28:43
Thank you all. As a new housing VISTA with SCDHC, this was very informative through a systems lens. I have to drop off for a mandatory training. Please share the meeting recording, if possible.
Jay Grant
02:32:49
Great discussion (have to leave for a 3pm) and kudos to you, Brandi, for handling this and your baby at the same time!
Pamela Johnson
02:34:37
Define affordable housing,
Yana Dunn
02:39:23
can a disabled person qualify for this program?
Tiffany Haynes (She/Her)
02:40:28
right
Tiffany Haynes (She/Her)
02:40:31
exactly
Scott McClaine
02:41:26
does the person that lives in the house have the same tax benefits as someone that buys a home in a traditional way?
Tiffany Haynes (She/Her)
02:44:41
how does the land trust and land bank model contribute to external influence like college gentrification, business/commercial development causing rise in cost of housing and raising equity in homes but doesn't preserve affordability
Tiffany Haynes (She/Her)
02:46:26
also how do we steer away from language of affordability if funding is specific to income restrictions and programs have restrictions that result in extremities in the people we serve on certain economic spectrums
David Sacks
02:46:27
Great job everyone! Thanks.
Tiffany Haynes (She/Her)
02:46:53
also how are we connecting with creditors and people who have say so in credit policies
Regina Walker
02:46:58
This discussion was GREAT!
JULIA OCHIENG

Pamela Johnson
03:54:33
Most of these problems exist because of how individuals view people who are different from them:
Alena Sigsby
04:03:25
Or just different from a perceived norm
Pamela Johnson
04:04:20
different race, nationality, socio-economic standing, etc. How do you change? Reject the thought that you are where you are because it's where you should be (survival of the fittest), that you need to maintain the status quo because your material value makes you better than those who have less and that it's ok to be partial
Pamela Johnson
04:05:35
Not a question an observation
Sarah Foote
04:06:08
These stats are certainly concerning. The frequency of FH violations is, like you said, not surprising, but disturbing.
Mike Burnette
04:07:10
yes we will send by tomorrow and please educate others by sharing!
Sarah Foote
04:07:21
I may have missed this, but where do FH violations regarding disability status line up in terms of frequency/occurrence?
Chelsea Snow
04:08:04
Thank you, This was a great presentation!
Pamela Johnson
04:08:36
