•Homeownership is the main way
that Americans build family wealth.
•Segregation suppressed homeownership
and wealth building opportunities for African Americans and
Asian Americans who had trouble obtaining loans because of
“Redlining” and faced artificially high prices.
•Even as restrictions have eased, families of
color are less likely to own homes and their homes are
worth less on average than white families who have
been accumulating real estate wealth for generations.
