On Thursday, May 4, from 2:30 – 3:45 PM, at the Congress for the New Urbanism's CNU 25.Seattle, RAMSA's Mark Santrach will participate on the panel "Diversity, Affordability, & Social Equity," discussing affordability and alternative home ownership strategies while analyzing housing markets by median home price and median household income to show how real estate prices affect homeownership rates. The presentation will consider American subsidies as well as housing schemes available in first-tier cities outside of the United States, including London’s Shared Ownership model, Singapore’s Housing Development Board initiatives, and China’s Housing Provident Fund. Also on the panel are Jay Crossley, Kristal Fiser, Andrew Georgiadis, Nidhi Gulati, Robert Orr, Scott Polikov, and Emily Talen.
