The mortgage industry has presented challenges for Black Americans, keeping Black families from owning homes. Redlining was the discriminatory practice where the mortgage industry refused to grant loans to areas earmarked as high-risk due to the high concentration of Black and Brown residents. Redlining and other barriers to entry had had residual effects that have lasted for over fifty years. While it’s no secret that the real estate industry has unequivocally discriminated against Black Americans, the B.R.E.D. network encourages first-time homebuyers to start, outlining the steps, the tools, and the process—in-depth interviews with successful Black investors and developers, like Don Peebles, detail insights from their experience. The platform continues to be a resource for potential investors looking to acquire and develop land and those interested in expanding their retirement options by investing in residential or commercial property.
Vote now to support the Black Real Estate Dialogue. A winner in this category will be determined by popular vote. Voting closes Thursday, April 20, at 11:59 pm PDT.
