If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
Surprise! Our Housing System is broken.
If you want to buy a house you usually need a mortgage. The banks take your downpayment take your interest and principle payments and then turn around and invest it in industries that destroy the planet and promote social injustice.
Developers (like homeowners) also rely on the money from “Big Banks”.
So they do what the Big Banks tell them, and build luxury units and/or shitty units and charge an arm and two legs. (Nothing for the people who need it).
So whether you rent or you buy most of the money you dish out each month on your housing cost ends up in a Big Bank. Right now in America there is $10.3 Trillion in mortgage debt from ’Big Banks’ (10X the student debt crisis).
‘Big Banks’ get away with this BS because they only answer to an exclusive group of Wall street bankers.
Wall Street gives zero f@*ks about you.
These same bankers are more than happy to make money at the expense of everyone else - including you and the planet.
Government Affordable Housing subsidies aren’t enough.
Because of decades of funding cuts and arbitrary budget caps, three out of four families eligible for housing assistance are denied any help.
11 million renter households are severely housing cost-burdened, paying more than half of their limited incomes on rent.
With CoEverything, we side stepped the Big Banks, turned our backs to wall street and created a new way developing housing.
