Surprises That Still Influence Housing (Un)Affordability

In Salt Lake City, the pursuit of affordable housing remains a crucial endeavor. As top real estate agents deeply invested in our community, The Stern Team is dedicated to shedding light on the complexities surrounding this issue

Redlining, a discriminatory practice banned decades ago, still casts a shadow over many neighborhoods. Despite legal safeguards, reports reveal ongoing violations. Through collaboration with advocacy groups like the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, we actively work to dismantle these barriers and promote fair lending practices.

The lack of awareness surrounding downpayment assistance programs poses a significant obstacle to homeownership. Shockingly, a substantial portion of potential buyers remains unaware of the resources available to them. At The Stern Team, we’re committed to bridging this information gap, empowering our clients with knowledge about grants and forgivable loans that can make their homeownership dreams a reality.

Inaccuracies in tenant screening processes exacerbate housing affordability challenges. Flawed screenings result in inflated costs, further burdening renters. As advocates for fair housing, we remain vigilant, staying informed about reliable screening services and ensuring our clients receive accurate information to make informed decisions.

At The Stern Team, we’re passionate about effecting positive change in our community. Contact us today to embark on your journey toward homeownership with confidence!
