Homeownership for middle-income families | 11:15 a.m. -12 p.m. CDT

There is a growing need for middle-income homeownership opportunities throughout Indian Country. In this session, we will provide guidance on where to start in developing a homeownership project or program. Our discussion will cover the variables that must be considered in a homeownership development and financing strategy. The session will not focus on homeownership loan products, such as 184 and RD 502. Instead, we’ll take a comprehensive look at the interplay between variables like: construction cost, determining market demand, sales price points to ensure affordability and market capture, construction and permanent financing, impact of interest rates and loan terms. With the right plan and development strategy, tribes and TDHEs are able to benefit from economies of scale and pass on homeownership opportunities that are less expensive to tribal members.
