Setting an effective affordable price and resale formula makes all the difference in whether a home stays affordable or gets lost to the market.
Across the country, significant amounts of public subsidy are being used to help families into homeownership. Policymakers and practitioners are turning to resale restrictions as a way to protect this investment and help more families build wealth. But making sure homes stay affordable over generations requires careful planning and design.

The series is great! I think it would be a great primer for those who don’t know the detail of our program but have to buy in to any changes—such as the members of the Affordable Housing Trust, the city manager, or the city council.

We showed the videos to a Board Member who lacked familiarity with housing terms. After watching the videos, he said that he finally understood the inherent issues with balancing a fair return and protecting the subsidy. He felt better equipped to support our model.
