The Numbers Don’t Lie…HBREA 2016

“The homeownership rate for the second quarter 2016 for non-Hispanic White householders reporting a single race was highest at 71.5 percent. The rate for Asian or Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander households was second at 53.7 percent and Black Alone householders was lowest at 41.7 percent. The homeownership rate for Black Alone householders was lower than the second quarter 2015 rate.Census.gov

Kim’s mission as President of HBREA is to ensure that Houston is a major component of the national president, Ron Cooper’s, vision of two million NEW Black Homeowners within five years.

She’s reaching out to the community in an effort to increase wealth that leads to legacies; to help preserve the value of homes in African American communities; and to share a plethora of information that will further assist African Americans to gain knowledge regarding homeownership, wills, trusts, property taxes, and more.
