A Citizen’s Guide To Real Estate Investment is a series of free workshops to educate members of the Detroit community about the fundamentals of homeownership and real estate entrepreneurship. The project seeks to stabilize Detroit’s neighborhoods through grassroots efforts, and proposes a solution to mitigate the current Tax Foreclosure crisis facing Detroit, which affects over 100,000 of the city’s residents. A Citizen’s Guide To Real Estate Investment addresses issues of gentrification and social inequities of Detroit as the city emerges from its recent bankruptcy. The project focuses on citizen-driven revitalization, and proposes new strategies for residents to strengthen their communities while building wealth through real estate entrepreneurship.
