Inequalities in Securing a Home Loan
Did you know that African American and Hispanic mortgage applicants were twice as likely to be denied as white applicants, according to a 2013 Zillow study? The real estate site found that 27.6% of African Americans, 21.9% of Hispanics, 13.3% of Asians, and 10.4% of whites were denied for conventional mortgages, giving some populations less access to credit. This creates a major hurdle in achieving homeownership.
What our customers are saying
I highly recommend Woodbine
I approached Woodbine because I was upside down with my home payment and needed some honest advice. Woodbine helped me by informing me about a recent program design to help homeowner in my situation. The result was we were able to get $30,000 in assistance for my home. I found the experience very beneficial, I learned a lot about not only my financial situation but, finances in general. I would highly recommend Woodbine to anyone seeking an understanding and/or assistance for their home
