Beth Boepple will be a panelist today on the fourth installment of the Vital Communities webinar series Expanding Ownership: Shared Ownership Models to Increase Access to Housing and Farmland. Taking place today from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, Beth will join host Erika Hoffman-Kiess of Green Mountain Economic Development Corporation and Seth Leonard, Managing Director of Community Development at the Vermont Housing Finance Agency to discuss the topic of Additional Shared Equity Tools: Adding Shared Equity Elements to Standard Ownership and Rental.
The previous webinars in the series looked at models where ownership of a property is shared between different parties. There are also tools that can keep property affordable for new purchasers or help a tenant build equity, while the property still remains largely in traditional ownership. This webinar will take a look at equity building lease provisions, resale limiting deed restrictions, and conservation easements, and potential scenarios in which these tools might be applicable.
The rest of the series is currently available online, and this segment will be available to view after today’s webinar.
