Charlotte Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem to Discuss Affordable Housing with Low to Moderate-Income Homebuyers Saturday Morning
One Thousand Registered and Expected to Attend
(Charlotte, NC – Oct. 20, 2017) Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts and Mayor Pro-Tem Vi Lyles Will discuss housing affordability with a group of nearly 1000 Charlotteans at a special workshop this morning.
The workshop, conducted by the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), will be held at St. Paul Baptist Church, 1401 Allen St. in Charlotte. Mayor Roberts and Mayor Pro-Tem Lyles will address the group beginning at 8:30 a.m. Joining the discussion will be NACA Founder and CEO Bruce Marks.
“The vast majority of people attending the workshop will be low and moderate-income home buyers, many of them first time home buyers”, according to Marks, who is flying in from NACA’s headquarters in Boston specifically for the event. “This is a special opportunity for them to discuss the ongoing issues of housing affordability, gentrification and neighborhood stabilization in Charlotte with two of their city’s most influential leaders”.
The workshop itself will begin after the discussion with Roberts, Lyles and Marks, and will be the first step for the attendees on the path to home ownership through NACA’s unique “Best Mortgage in America” program. The program helps homebuyers obtain mortgages at a fair, fixed rate and with no down payment, no closing costs, no PMI and no requirement for perfect credit. They can also potentially buy down their interest rate to virtually zero through the program. More than 60,000 homes have been bought through the program nationwide.
“Both Mayor Roberts and Mayor Pro-Tem Lyles are committed to solving Charlotte’s housing issues”, Marks continued, “and this will be an excellent opportunity for all involved to openly discuss affordability and other housing issues that are presenting a serious threat to the quality of life for many working people in Charlotte.”
