June is National Homeownership Month, which gives us a chance to celebrate the ways homeownership opportunities have improved in the last year, as well as reflect on ways we can improve in the coming year. To kick off the month, US Department of Housing and Urban Development secretary Ben Carson will be discussing the history and outlook of homeownership at 2pm EDT on June 1st, 2017.

There will be a webcast of the event.  

US Department of Housing and Urban Development states the following about their discussion on Thursday:

“Join HUD Secretary Ben Carson and a diverse group of experts to discuss the history and the outlook of this central foundation of ‘The American Dream.” Our panel of researchers and housing professionals will discuss the recent housing crisis and its impact on consumer behavior with a focus on the challenges millennial purchasers face as they enter the market in greater numbers.”
