(RECAP: The Better Housing Coalition will receive a $2.25 million boost from state resources to transform the former Quality Inn at 3200 W. Broad St. into a mixed-income apartment complex for families. The nonprofit affordable-housing developer will be awarded the money through a competitive Vibrant Community Initiative grant and will use the funds to underwrite the development of the property along an entire block in the rapidly evolving Scott’s Addition area of Richmond.)
CBS News, Wednesday, June 21, 2017
(RECAP: The housing market crash, which started in 2007 and kicked off the Great Recession, blighted both the financial and real estate industries. Among the many participants whose reputations were ruined, few took more damage than the mortgage brokers who sold adjustable-rate mortgages.

Housingwire, Wednesday, June 14, 2017
(RECAP: In order to help borrowers be more prepared, and even expand the pool of eligible homebuyers, Fannie Mae explained homeowner education and housing counseling must play a critical role. However, the company explained consumers and even some lenders see homeownership education courses as simply an inconvenience.)
The Washington Post, Wednesday, June 21, 2017
(RECAP: Do we always need an appraiser to tell us what a house is worth? The country’s two biggest sources of mortgage financing — Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae — think not. With no formal public announcement, Freddie Mac on June 19 began phasing in its plan to transition to appraisal-free mortgages for certain loan applications.)
Augusta Free Press, Monday, June 12, 2017
(RECAP: Governor Terry McAuliffe today announced $2.25 million in Vibrant Community Initiative funding for a housing and community development project in the City of Richmond. The Better Housing Coalition will receive funds for a comprehensive community-based strategy expanding the availability of affordable housing and creating more opportunity for community residents to succeed.)
