The highly anticipated Black Men Buy Houses Workshop, led by Kevan and Ayesha  Shelton, is set to launch its 2024 season on May 11th  from 12 pm to 4 pm.  This  workshop is pivotal in helping Black men achieve homeownership. A recent article from Black Enterprise highlights a notable trend where Black  women are increasingly outpacing Black men in homeownership rates, despite facing various socioeconomic challenges. While Black women have made significant strides in securing homes, Black men continue   to   lag   behind,

primarily due to systemic barriers. These  include stringent credit requirements and racial discrimination in housing and lending markets, which disproportionately affect Black men’s access to essential homeownership resources. This disparity emphasizes the urgent  need for targeted policy interventions and community support  programs designed to address these challenges and support Black men in their pursuit of homeownership.

The importance of initiatives like those led by the Shelton’s is highlighted by the success of their 2023 event, which facilitated 15 homeownership transactions. Such achievements showcase the transformative impact of dedicated real estate education and support, affirming the Sheltons’ commitment to create economic empowerment among Black men through real estate.

Among last year’s success stories is Nadim Sammur, who purchased his home following the 2023 event. Reflecting on his experience, Nadim said,

Attending the event provided eye-opening insights on financial literacy and investments, making the decision to purchase a no-brainer. Despite initial credit challenges, market trends indicated it was the right time to buy. Working with Ayesha made the home buying process seamless; her dedication, support, and ability to ease first-time buyer anxieties were invaluable. More than just securing the best deal, Ayesha’s personalized approach created a familial bond that extended beyond the transaction, for which I am deeply grateful.

This year’s initiative begins with the “Black Men Buy Houses” workshop to provide essential tools and knowledge for prospective homebuyers and aspiring investors. The programming is designed to guide participants through the nuances of the home buying process, offering an afternoon filled with learning opportunities.

Scheduled educational classes for the 2024 season include:

  • Finances 101 (Credit, Budgeting, Planning): A fundamental course that covers the essentials of financial health, crucial for securing a stable future.
  • Down   Payment   Assistance   and   Working   with   a   Realtor:   Insights   into   navigating financial assistance programs and effectively working with real estate professionals.
