The National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) will host the 2021 Black Home Owners Summit in Houston, TX, with a focus on the state of black housing, including the release of the 2021 State of Housing in Black America (SHIBA) report. The report confirms that the homeownership rate gap between black and white families is larger today than when housing discrimination was legal. In 1960, there was a 27-point gap between black (38%) and white (65%) ownership. Today, the gap is bigger. In the first quarter of 2021, the homeownership rate for white households was 73.8% and 45.1% for black householdss. In addition, SHIBA examines the impact of COVID-19 on housing, as well as government and industry policies that have impacted black homeownership. Summit sessions also examine barriers to black home ownership, proposed solutions to build black wealth, close the racial wealth gap, student debt and access to credit.
