Outside of regulatory areas, local housing groups can work with willing owners who would gladly sell to a new family but have no easy way to do that. This would involve the creation of a system (likely managed by a non-profit and supported by institutions) that would identify homes before they go to market and line up prospective buyers looking for a primary residence. This can also be coupled with financial counseling that is already done in places and even involve a financial boost in high-price markets where the non-profit provides some of the purchase funding but limits the new owner’s equity appreciation at subsequent sale.
