Housing

This week on The Local Take I speak with Pamela Shifman from the NoVoFoundation.  The NoVo Foundation is dedicated to building a more just and balanced world and focuses explicitly on girls and women. Their mission is to end violence against girls and women including shutting down the sexual exploitation and abuse of women. 

Wayne Early is an economist and realtor who is a member of the South Dekalb Improvement Association.  He spoke with us about Home Valuation and Appraisal Discrimination. 

We discussed lagging home prices in African American neighborhoods and the challenges that home owners face when selling their homes. He spoke about the Realtor rules and regulations that have begun to evolve but once considered it unethical to show African Americans homes in majority White neighborhood.
