    “AT RISK” BAY AREA RENTERS & HOMEBUYERS:                                                                                                           

    A Call to renters and homebuyers afraid they’re being priced out of Bay Area housing! Seize this rare opportunity to learn how to ‘Buy and live in your own small building’ from the Co-Ownership Expert,  Attorney D. Andy Sirkin.

    Andy wrote the book on ‘The Equity Sharing Manual’, the benchmark roadmap to affordable home ownership and he can tell how.  Attend this high impact affordable housing symposium and discover how the ‘TIC’, Tenancy In Common and ‘Shared Equity’ methods, open doors to affordable home ownership. 

    Meet with others like you who are at risk of losing out and gain complete authoritative knowledge. Andy will identify multiple strategies you can use to buy, own, and live in your own small building - duplex, triplex, fourplex, or buy a single family home for multiple dwellers. Come join us to secure tangible knowledge of how to be your own investor (BYOI) and Buy Your Own Building  (BYOB).

    Joining Andy is Mortgage Expert, Cheyenne Martinez-Boyer, from Sterling Bank & Trust who pioneered ‘TIC’ mortgage lending. They have offered TIC loans longer than any other lender say “Enjoy the benefits of home ownership in buildings that aren't condos.” 

    Finally, Francis McIlvenny, of Northern California Community Land Trust will talk about sharing equity with a nonprofit to guarantee long-term affordability, security, and partnership, not for those getting older or lacking the income to qualify for market-rate mortgages. 

    What are the legal and financial options for buying and financing properties for cooperative housing communities? 

    Join us to hear firsthand from these 3 experts who have helped EBCOHO members and many  other people realize their housing dreams. Program includes time for presentations (with handouts); Bay Area examples; Q&A and discussion.  Meet and share interests with other participants as well. 

    Light refreshments will be served!

    Has the date for this been decided?

    December 12

    • Raines C.

      No, it is reliant on one of the presenter's travel schedules, this is still just a placeholder.

    Interested people with day jobs (like me) will have to miss this, but please let me know if something similar is scheduled for a weekend. I want to be part of a cohousing start-up or find somebody who wants to co-purchase a duplex. Thanks.

    • Raines C.

      Kathy, thanks so much for your interest. Betsy is scheduling a Saturday session that will cover similar material in a more hands-on format.

    Based on member input and hearing from our co-host, we will work to find a new date that works well.

    I hope you can have this event again. I have to work part-time and will not be able to attend on this date.

    October 26, 2015

    • Raines C.

      we are scheduling a workshop Saturday that will give us time to learn and discuss this material (open to those who can't make it Thursday -- you are not alone), and looking at offering a video-on-demand option.
