Members of the LGBTQIA+ community are statistically less likely to be homeowners...
I'd like to help change that.
Homeownership is a pathway to wealth and security. According to the Fed's latest Survey of Consumer Finances, homeowners have 44.5 times more net worth than renters...but only 49.8% of LGBTQIA+ adults own their homes vs 70.1% of non-LGBTQIA+ adults (Conron, 2019). Many factors contribute to these statistics including lack of family support, higher levels of homelessness at a young age, and discriminatory practices by mortgage lenders and other players in the industry. The LGBTQIA+ community has fought for equality on so many fronts, and it's time we fight to level the playing field in the arena of homeownership.
If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and considering buying a home but don't know where to start... you've come to the right place. I will listen to you, I will help explain the home buying process, and I will connect you with a lender who will help you explore your options. You may need less money for a downpayment than you think. My area of service is the Main Line and Greater Philadelphia, but if you are thinking of buying in another state in the US, I can connect you with a Compass agent in my OUT At Compass network or through the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance, of which I am a proud member.
