We’re pleased to announce that the Spring 2007 issue of Shelterforce magazine is now online.
The issue takes a close look at shared-equity homeownership and its promise of new paths to housing affordability and stability. Is shared-equity homeownership in its various forms a real alternative to more conventional forms of public or private ownership? Can it be brought to scale, providing new rungs on the housing ladder between rental and fee-simple homeownership?
From a hard-won limited-equity cooperative in Washington, D.C., to resident-owned communities in Milford, N.H., to community land trusts in Irvine, Calif. and Chicago, Ill., Shelterforce examines shared-equity models cropping up around the country and analyzes their potential for helping to close the affordable-housing gap.
You’ll find a summary and links to these and more feature articles below.
As always, we look forward to your thoughts about the articles. Please send comments and questions to Shelterforce editor Alice Chasan.
