THE STATE OF HOUSING FOR CALIFORNIANS 31


California's Housing Future: Challenges and Opportunities Public Draft California Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency Alexis Podesta, acting Secretary California Department of Housing and Community Development Ben Metcalf, Director 32


PROJECTED HOUSING NEEDS THROUGH 2025 1.8 Million New Homes Needed by 2025 From 2015-2025, approximately 1.8 million new housing units are needed to meet projected population and household growth, or 180,000 new homes annually.

33


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • Today’s population of 39 million is expected to grow to 50 million by 2050. • Without intervention, much of the population increase can be expected to occur further from job centers, highperforming schools, and transit, constraining opportunity for future generations. 34


DEMOGRAPHIC TRENDS DRIVE HOUSING • California’s 39 million people live in 13 million households across 58 counties and 482 cities. • There are three cities with more than one million residents, LA, SD, SJ, there are 107 cities with less than 10,000 residents. • The largest population concentration is in Southern California. 35


HOUSEHOLD GROWTH • Through 2025, the highest percentage of household growth is expected to occur in the Bay Area, Southern California, and Central Valley communities. • Between 2014 and 2015, approximately 25 percent of population growth came from migration from other states and countries; • 75 percent of population growth was attributable to births within California. 36


RACE AND ETHNICITY POPULATION TRENDS •

California’s population is projected to become increasingly racially diverse through 2040. According to The National Equity Atlas, as of the 2010 Census, California is second only to Hawaii in diversity in the nation. People of color have represented the majority of the population in California since 2000 and are projected to be the majority nationwide by 2044. As people of color continue to grow as a share of the workforce and population, California’s success and prosperity will be ever more directly linked to the social and economic well-being of the State’s communities of color. 37


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • New Construction averaged less than 80,000 new homes annually over the last 10 years, • Production continues to fall far below the projected need of 180,000 additional homes annually. 38


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • This lack of supply greatly impacts housing affordability. Low production hasn't always been the case. • From 1955-1990, the State was building more than 200,000 homes annually and a much greater percentage were multifamily (in contrast to today's focus on single-family). 39


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • In addition to our supply challenges, the housing growth that does occur frequently takes the form of urban sprawl; expanding into undeveloped areas • These development patterns often resulted in reinforcing income inequality and patterns of segregation 40


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • Lack of supply and rising costs are compounding growing inequality and limiting advancement opportunities for younger Californians. • Without intervention much of the housing growth is expected to overlap significantly with disadvantaged communities and areas with less job availability, • Continued sprawl will decrease affordability and quality of life while increasing transportation costs. 41


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • The majority of Californian renters — more than 3 million households — pay more than 30 percent of their income toward rent • Nearly one-third — more than 1.5 million households — pay more than 50% of their income toward rent. • Overall homeownership rates are at their lowest since the 1940s. 42


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA • California is home to 12 percent of the nation’s population, • But a disproportionate 22 percent of the nation’s homeless population. • On a single night in 2016, more than 118,000 people experienced homelessness in California— 43


ISSUES FACING CALIFORNIA California also had the highest number of people experiencing chronic homelessness in the United States, Nearly one third of the nation’s youth, Nearly one-fourth of the nation’s homeless veterans More than one third of the nation’s chronically homeless residents. 44


OVERCROWDING • Overcrowding is when there is more than one resident per room (every room in the home, bedrooms, kitchen, living room, etc. is included in this calculation).

• California’s overcrowding rate is 8.4 percent. 45


OVERCROWDING • Twice as high as the national average 3.4 percent. California has the second highest percentage of overcrowded households of any state. • The renter overcrowding rate for California is 13.5 percent, more than triple the owner overcrowding rate of 4 percent. 46


HOMEOWNERSHIP RATE TRENDS • Since the 1950s, California’s homeownership rate has fallen below the national rate, with a significant gap persisting since the 1970s. • Between 2006 and 2014, the number of housing units that were owner occupied fell by almost 250,000 in California, 47


HOMEOWNERSHIP RATE TRENDS • The number of renter-occupied units increased by about 850,000. • According to the Public Policy Institute of California, “much of the increase in rental units occurred among formerly owned single family detached housing units.” 48


49


HOMEOWNERSHIP RATES BY RACE AND ETHNICITY • Homeownership rates also vary by race and ethnicity in California. • White (Non-Hispanic) were homeowners 64%, compared to only 35% of households that identified as Black or African-American.


51


HOMEOWNERSHIP RATE TRENDS Some key factors in the increased demand

for rental housing since the recession include: • •

Foreclosures and former owners moving into the rental market. Demographic shifts, particularly the generational boom of millennials coming of age and entering the housing market with strong rental tendencies. Lack of supply. 52


HOMEOWNERSHIP RATE TRENDS Deferred home buying, due to: – Lack of market confidence. – Reduced access to mortgage credit following the recession. – Unemployment and stagnant wages. – Competition with investors buying homes to convert to rentals. – Student Loan Debt 53

THE STATE OF HOUSING IN THE UNITED STATES IS THE WEALTH GAP FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS 59


RESEARCH STUDY ON THE WEALTH GAP Brandeis University Institute of Asset and social Policy RESEARCH AND POLICY BRIEF FEBRUARY 2013 The Roots of the Widening Racial Wealth Gap: Explaining the Black-White Economic Divide

Authored by: Thomas Shapiro Tatjana Meschede Sam Osoro 60


RESEARCH STUDY ON THE WEALTH GAP â—? The goal of the study was to examine the effect of policy and institutional decision-making on how average families accumulate wealth. â—? There was a insufficient number of Latino, Asian American, or immigrant households to include in this report but the results can be applied across communities of color. 61


RESEARCH STUDY ON THE WEALTH GAP Data for this analysis was derived from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), a nationally representative longitudinal study that began in 1968.

They followed nearly 1,700 working-age households from 1984 through 2009.

62


MEDIAN WEALTH In 2009, a representative survey of American household revealed That the median wealth of: White families - $113,149 Latino families- $6,325 Black families - $5,677 The Gross Domestic Product of African American is 1.3 Trillion dollars and 1.5 Trillion dollars for Hispanics. Why is the median wealth so low? 63


YOUR POWER IS NOW TO BUILD WEALTH You're not building wealth if you use all your money for consumption.

The GDP of African American is 1.3 Trillion dollars (13 out of 182 countries) The GDP for Hispanics is 2.1 Trillion dollars (7 out of 182 countries)

64


GREAT RECESSION AND GREAT GAP The Wealth Gap Research Report Traced the same 1700 families over a 25-year period (1984-2009) and found that the total wealth gap between White and African-American families nearly tripled, increasing from:

• $85,000 in 1984 to $236,500 in 2009

The Wealth Gap: $152,000 and growing 65


THE STATE OF HOUSING FOR MINORITIES •

The Black/Brown-White Economic Divide Real

African American and Hispanic communities were hit the hardest by the Great Financial Crises from 2007 to 2009

They have the farthest to climb to get back into the home ownership before home values get back to their pre-recession prices.

It may be too late for many because interest rates will be rising and home prices are increasing now.


1994 Blacks & Hispanic Homeownership Rates: 40 & 42% respectively. 2004 Blacks achieved a high of 50% 2014 Blacks were at 42.5% and Hispanics 43.5% Hispanics. 67


THE STATE OF HOUSING FOR MINORITIES •

The homeownership rate in the U.S. is 63.5 percent overall. The rate among whites is 72.2%, Asians, 56.6%, Hispanic 46.3%, African Americans 41.7%

https://www.census.gov/housing/hvs/files/currenthvspress.pdf

68


THE STATE OF HOUSING BY AGE •

The homeownership rate by Age of Householder. Under 35 - 34.7 percent, 35 to 44 - 58.7 percent, 45 to 54 - 69.8 percent, 55 to 64 - 74.8 percent, 65 and over - 79.5 percent.

https://www.census.gov/housing/hvs/files/currenthvspress.pdf


LESSONS LEARNED - GREAT FINANCIAL CRISIS 1. We must save money – Make it your #1 priority now and not later. 2. We must live on a budget – Do not live by hope & faith and beyond your means 3. We must establish an emergency fund – Plan for the worse & expect emergencies.


LESSONS LEARNED - GREAT FINANCIAL CRISIS 4. Stop financing vehicles - Pay cash or limit financing to 12 mos. 5. Become debt free – Save & Buy Stop Borrowing and Buying 6. Buy real property – Buy a house before you buy an expensive car/personal item.


THE STATE OF HOUSING FOR MINORITIES •

If homeownership continues to be the primary vehicle that Minorities use to create wealth then Minorities are on the path to another Economic Crisis and homelessness!

It’s time to take action and personal responsibility and build wealth.


WEALTH IS THE DIFFERENCE Wealth provides a measure of security when a job loss or personal crisis occurs.

The Ever-Growing GAP Without Change, African American and Latino Families Won’t Match White for Centuries. Institute for Policy Studies 1112 16th Street NW, Suite 600, Washington, DC 20036 CFED 1200 G Street NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20005 74


75


WEALTH GAP • Over the past 30 years, the average wealth of White families has grown by 84%—1.2 times the rate of growth for the Latino population and 3 times the rate of growth for the Black population 76


WEALTH GAP • Over the past 30 years, the wealth of the Forbes 400 richest Americans has grown by an average of 736%—10 times the rate of growth for the Latino population and 27 times the rate of growth for the Black population. 77


WEALTH GAP • The wealthiest 20% of Americans have taken 99.4% of all gains in wealth while the bottom 80% have been left to split just 0.6% among themselves.

78


WEALTH GAP • The Richest 400 individuals— with a collective net worth of $2.34 trillion—now own more wealth than the entire Black population, plus one-third of the Latino population, combined.

79


80


WEALTH GAP • If average Black family wealth continues to grow at the same pace it has over the past three decades, it would take Black families 228 years to amass the same amount of wealth White families have today. • That’s just 17 years shorter than the 245-year span of slavery in this country. 81


WEALTH GAP • For the average Latino family, it would take 84 years to amass the same amount of wealth White families have today—that’s the year 2097.


Great Recession further exacerbated the wealth gap as Blacks and Latinos disproportionally impacted by the bursting of the housing bubble. Between 2007 and 2010, the average Black and Latino households lost three and four times more wealth, respectively, than the average White household.

83


Extrapolating from past trends, we can estimate what the future of wealth inequality will look like in this country. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look good.

How do we close the Gap?

The Great Recession further exacerbated the wealth gap as Blacks and Latinos where disproportionally impacted by the bursting of the housing bubble. Between 2007 and 2010, the average Black and Latino households lost three and four times more wealth, respectively, than the average White household.

109


How do we close the Gap?

110


The 1934 National Housing Act Housing & Economic Strategy It Didn’t Work for Minorities Until after 1968 111


FHA • The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) was created as part of the National Housing Act of 1934 in response to the struggling housing industry following the Great Depression.


FHA Before its creation, only 40% of Americans were homeowners.

The low homeownership rate was largely due to the limited short-term financing available,

Most loan terms offered three to five-year payment plans

Large down payments were required often consisting of 50% of the purchase price. 113


FHA • The FHA is a government agency, however its funding is self-generated. • It has insured over 34 million home mortgages and over 47,000 multifamily projects since its inception. • Mortgage Insurance premiums fund the program 114


FHA • In 1965, the FHA became part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). • In 1944 the VA Loan became a benefit to men and women who served in the military • Between 1934 to 1968 only 2% of Government Loans were made to African Americans. • It would take Legal Action at the Federal Level for change to take place. 115


THE FAIR HOUSING ACT Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act) prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental and financing of dwellings based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

Title VIII was amended in 1988 (effective March 12, 1989) by the Fair Housing Amendments Act, which:

expanded the coverage of the Fair Housing Act to prohibit discrimination based on disability or on familial status (presence of child under age of 18, and pregnant women);

established new administrative enforcement mechanisms with HUD attorneys bringing actions before administrative law judges on behalf of victims of housing discrimination;

and revised and expanded Justice Department jurisdiction to bring suit on behalf of victims in Federal district courts.

VA LOAN PROGRAM • What is a VA Loan? a VA loan is insured by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and offered by many lenders across the country. The VA program was created to help Veterans become homeowners without a down payment even if they have low credit scores. • If you’ve served in the active military for at least six months, or in the reserves or National Guard for six years, or a spouse of someone who meets these conditions, you’ll likely qualify. 121

VA FUNDING FEE • If you do put down 10% of the loan, this fee is lowered to 1.25%. The exact percentage will vary based on your down payment and the type of veteran you are. • If you were discharged for disability reasons, this funding fee is waived. 126
