Detroit Future City’s (DFC) tool, “A Detroit Homebuyer’s Guide to Overcoming Mortgage Application Obstacles,” guides Detroiters through key obstacles, practical solutions, and legal remedies that may help prospective homebuyers successfully navigate the homebuying process. The guide also discusses topics ranging from credit assessment and lending conditions to racial discrimination.
This guide builds on our “Buying In: Opportunities For Increasing Homeownership In Detroit” report, which identifies and describes mortgage-related barriers that Detroiters commonly encounter in the process of homebuying.
Funding for this guide is provided by JPMorgan Chase Foundation.Read the report
