Owning a home is the dream of most American households. It is well documented that home ownership brings prosperity to residents, but it also helps ensure the financial stability of future generations.

There is currently a significant wealth gap between white and black households, even among homeowners. Recent research suggests that the way houses are valued could play a role in exacerbating this inequality.

What is the cause of this problem? How can it be fixed? On August 5th, the NAR panelists listed below took an in-depth look at the issue and presented solutions that uphold a fair and equitable system for property valuation.
