Martin Luther King fought for equal and civil rights, which included the notion of the right to equal housing for all. These instilled rights create and maintain a world, according to King, “where black men and white men, Jews and gentiles, Protestants and Catholics … sons of former slaves and sons of former slave owners, say, Free at last, thank God almighty, we’re free at last.”
In the spirit of King’s vision, equal access to homeownership encourages members of a community to alleviate this disconnect. Toward this end, opportunities for potential homeowners remain ripe. Prices are much more attainable, and interest rates are still very low. With a generous amount of inventory under $200,000 and interest rates at record lows, first-time buyers can now buy more house and still have an affordable monthly mortgage.
More good news: Realtors (Like Me!) are inspired by King’s legacy to continue to help members of our communities seek the American dream. A number of programs provide home buying assistance to individuals based on income.
Let us now, courageously stand up, embrace our differences, and roll up our sleeves to continue to carry the torch for equal housing opportunities. As a community, we need to keep forging ahead, like Martin Luther King, by advancing the rights of all. Homeownership continues to become available for more individuals and families than ever before … something needed to secure our dreams and preserve the opportunities Martin Luther King foresaw for all of us.
