Examining Black Homeownership Trends

first_img About Author: Radhika Ojha  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Black Americans own a much smaller number of homes compared to other demographics across the nation’s 50 largest metros, according to a new study by LendingTree.The study, which focused on homeownership trends among African Americans revealed that while Americans who identified as Black made up around 15% of the population in each of the metropolitan areas, only 10% of owner-occupied homes were owned by them.LendingTree also found that across the metropolitan areas covered in the study, the average median household income for this demographic was $41,571, over $30,000 below the average household income recorded for white Americans in these cities. This was especially important, the study said, “because lenders evaluate a potential borrower’s income, and this can pose challenges when it comes time to qualify for a mortgage.”Looking at the cities with the lowest percentage of Black American homeownership, the study said that Memphis, Tennessee’s Black population was 46.5%. Comparatively, the percentage of black-owner occupied homes was 34.7%. With a median difference of 11.7% between the population and overall owner-occupied homes, Memphis has the lowest percentage of homes owned by black Americans relative to their total population.New Orleans with a difference of -24.8%; Milwaukee (-9.2%); Baltimore (-9.1%); and Virginia Beach, Virginia (-8.5%) rounded off the five cities that had the lowest homeownership rates among Black Americans relative to their total population.On the other hand, while Black Americans account for only 2.3% of San Jose, California’s population, the study found that the percentage of homes owned by them was the largest relative to their overall population across the 50 metros in the study. However, LendingTree pointed out, “The percentage of homes owned by black homeowners is nearly 1.5%, which is still a disproportionately small percentage.”Concluding from the study, LendingTree said that while the homeownership rates among this population remained low there were several ways to increase it, “one of them is by raising awareness about the available homebuying programs on both a national and local level.” Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

Fired Windies coach Simmons mulls legal action

first_imgRECENTLY dismissed West Indies coach Phil Simmons is reportedly considering legal action against the West Indies Cricket Board(WICB).According to reports published in The Telegraph the coach is expected to meet with his lawyer over the course of the next couple of days before coming to a decision.Simmons was fired as the head of the regional team last week, with the WICB citing ‘differences in culture and strategic approach’ for dismissing the former player.Despite the WICB not being more specific as to why the coach was relieved of his duties, one major bone of contention between the parties stemmed from the player selection process.Simmons was keen to get several players currently on the fringes of the West Indies team back into selection contention, while the selection panel routinely looked in other directions.In November of last year Simmons was suspended for alleging outside interference in the selection process. The coach was, however, later re-instated. The West Indies are currently on tour against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. Henderson Springer, the assistant coach, is the acting head coach.( read more

Women’s water polo dominates weekend tournament

first_imgTwelve Trojans scored in the first game of the doubleheader as USC, which holds a record of 8-0, beat Concordia uncontested 21-0. It was a well-rounded attack: Freshman 2-meter Mireia Guiral led the team with 4 points, while freshmen utility Bayley Weber, 2-meter Tilly Kearns, freshman driver Alejandra Aznar, sophomore driver Sabrina Garabet and junior utility Maud Megens all finished the game with multiple goals. “As a goalie, it’s really important to run the defense as best as I can because I can see things as they go on from a better angle [than the other players] can, so I make myself talk and be vocal the whole time so that I’m occupied,” Longan said. Thirteen Trojans scored in the victory, led by Anzar with 4 points. Sophomore driver Verica Bakoc, Hauschild, Megens, Guiral, freshman driver Grace Tehaney and sophomore driver Kari Jensen also scored multiple times. Junior driver Elise Stein, Weber, Mammolito, McIntosh, Rozolis-Hill and Kearns notched points as well. Junior driver Denise Mammolito, sophomore driver Paige Hauschild, junior driver Kelsey McIntosh, freshman 2-meter Julia Rozolis-Hill, freshman utility Claire Haas and freshman driver Sophia Lucas all contributed points as well. The Trojans continued their strong momentum on both offense and defense in the second game of the day, securing a 23-0 victory over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. “There were a few passes that we made that weren’t great, and at times we forced things, but for the most part, I think that we made the right decisions and executed,” she said. USC’s 21-0 rout over Concordia Saturday marked senior goalie Amanda Longan’s fourth career shutout. (Emily Smith/Daily Trojan) Although the Trojans dominated in both games, Longan said that they can always find ways to improve their performance. “I think something for us that we did better that we hadn’t in previous games is we communicated more, which is big especially for the younger players to use their voices,” Longan said. “That way, when [Coach Vavic] would call something, we were all on the same page, so everything functioned like a system should.” The No. 1 USC women’s water polo team maintained its undefeated streak at the CBU Mini Invitational in Riverside on Saturday with two shutout victories against Concordia University and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Mammolito said the team could bring more attention to its decision-making during games. “I think adjusting to switch ups so when we call something, and then the other team counters that with something a little trickier [could be improved],” she said. “Making that adjustment faster is something we could do better.” USC was successful at implementing the defenses they have been working on in practice and also pushing the counter attack and finishing high opportunity shots, according to Mammolito. Junior goalie Holly Parker manned the net with five saves, securing her first career shutout. Longan said communication was also key in the two victories on Saturday. Senior goalie Amanda Longan anchored the Trojan defense with nine saves. The game marked Longan’s fourth career shutout. The Trojans stay in home waters this week in an exhibition game to take on the Chinese national team, which some members of the USC women’s team have trained with in the past. The game will be played on Thursday at 5 p.m. at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center.last_img read more
