means so much to me is everything to me. by myself. i tend to favor it. so peaceful cannot be walk around in my underwear, going into refrigerator, get some apple juice, and going out on the porch and smoke cigarettes. you always find a reason to snap out of it all day j. so it's not fun when you leave and going back to what they call a trenches from the 30th onward. every single president has spoken of homeownership almost as the
basis of citizenship. your ability to own a home kinda makes us citizen, the most tangible cornerstone that live at the heart of the american dream. and that's the chance to own your own home. those of us you've been given positions of responsibility much, much so do everything we can to spotlight the dream measure. the dream shines in all neighborhoods all across the country. i say to millions of young working couple, by the time your children are ready to start 1st grade, we want you to be able to your home to be in there. and people need to make sure that the family lives in a home. i have a problem. i
me i'm jim the realtor here are some tips for homebuyers. number one work with a great realtor, a good realtor sells at least one house a month. check their sales history on zillow. the americans love buying homes in southern california, especially. we dig real estate and we forgot about them and all the other trouble, the financing and everything else. and here we are right back at it. frenzied up 51015 buyers for every house. like none of that ever happened.
on the 800 video document at the real estate market on youtube, i got almost 1500 youtube and it gives people real good sense of what's happening i'm. it's true of this today. so for 1.61.1000000 here. point 45. i don't know what to say, but i don't know what the grid is. dollhouse pool in the front yard, slightly unfinished firepit. why is feeling the trim piece? me all the other appliances, all still one could have been so nice about those pillars that they had to steal,
not sure, and there's 15, how a mystery. i think it was at least 8 of them had loans way over me. and well, if you're sitting on a 1.2 or 1.4 loan and you see how the list different, 585, how they're going to make you feel that i can the next name and i'm general. so what we saw in 2008 was the unwinding of housing finance system. what most people understand as a financial crisis or a problem of our housing stock actually is unwinding of a social contract that was built in the 1940 s. and so understanding that and how the american home was the basis of how we organized the economy and how we organized social stability is an important part of understanding why we are where
we are now. me the pretty nice name. i don't know if any of these places used to be a whole fire house many years ago. i just went back to my house. oh no. this was an old bowl 5 years ago when i bought it. i was i did the yoga or the attorney. well no, i was born here many years ago and they used to be an old fire house around here someplace were you know, where i would have been might have been here and i was converted or there used to be a tiny, tiny fire house. let me just check up a little bit with my
mother punch in your face over there. when i was 6 months old. we moved from little italy in manhattan to this area right here. it was a housing project. one night. my uncle frank was all what his wife and a mob guys came down as well. can you guys with badge and felt steaks? they want a way to fight a bunch of black ice and they walk past us. and my uncle flank said to my father, get this kid, get him out of this neighborhood and move. and it was not that long after that we moved to the town. right? you're gonna tell me, how did you leave new york tribal bridge? really got to this neighborhood. it's going to support you got a great job. it a great place to agree with picket fence the
whatever town is not rich neighborhood, you can say. but what i love about this town is, is a new college town. it is what i consider to be backed by one of america. when america fights, it was, its people like us who got i buy the town was the 1st community which kind of felt like this nation. but everybody thought it was going to fail because he built 10000 houses like that. coming out of the 2nd world war, the idea of mass production became something that was truly a reality. hey, kids love our whole new world to build the idea that came to a man named bill. love it was this. why not mass produce the elements that go to make up our house? just as the auto industry does with the parts that go into
a new car. i, when i was living there, it was at a very particular moment and that was coming out of postwar trajectory that created the need for that type of housing. ah, returning. you could buy a house for as little as a $100.00 down and about $99.00 a month. and that was partly because the federal government was ensuring your mortgage. we had the g i bill encouraging construction of new homes. so the whole idea is your government wants you to have a home. so this was an easy way to sort of jumpstart housing industry and make home ownership possible without those subsidies, lower and middle class families did never been able to afford to massive movement to the suburbs that we saw in the late 19 forties. 19 fifties and 960 s
i was a police officer here in national county, and we were the swat team as well. i went to and you noticed story about sticking your tongue on a plate both in the middle of winter. i didn't quite on netflix. i swear to god i didn't. if you couldn't afford to put a down payment letter, it would let you went. was the option to buy. so he was just this is william robin had a progress on building firm in the world. fell all in the 2nd an awful lot of doing . we had to start from scratch with absolutely no. everything had to be done at once. if you go back to william levitt, he said no man who owns his own home in law can be a communist. because he has too much to do
the, this was a funding, mental part of how our political leadership and our country at large understood the bargain. you get a right, i mean have to work or 30 or jobs that go along when it didn't match the 30 year mortgage. and then you'll rebel, right as the things you don't result if you have a stake in the system. the ah me driven by
nixon saying decrease that the strength of the american economy is the post to our home and the ability to purchase consumer durable stability. so let's go to the system that will give the people more good will be the better system. and this one particular moment, nixon was right. ah, this was the strength in the american economy. i can remember even as a kid, looking at house magazine and seems the incredible vision of the future. the house represented in those pages was something that you could aspire to. and that was starting to become a reality was magic, how wonderful it would be to live and out like that. the future big companies present in the house of the future warehouse of 999 will be virtually maintenance
ah, as i'm fighting alongside a black man was willing to die. and he can't buy a house next to me and live again. simon, i don't make a nuisance. ah! why did you select glad to believe we were looking for a place to buy a home? we looked at the town we liked here we liked the advantages of left counting dom offer in comparison to other cities and we understood that it was going to be all right, we're very happy to buy a home here. ah,
when you come to this neighborhood, you know me to do. it's different on 20 centers. it gives you a feeling park like the settings. ah, in the news the i was struck by how familiar it felt. it was a connection to leopard town that they both developed as opposed to the suburbs. i believe, i believe. and he built these houses. he really built youth houses for the veterans coming home from the war. it was hard for him to get financing for these houses. because they were so different,
the whole social part was partner his design. and probably i shouldn't even say and said don't. i'm not even going to open a socialist. and i think a lot of the people that moved in here were i'm going again 12 percent. oh, my father is gregory a fairly well known california architect from the forties and fifties. so these are the letter that i just came into my hotel room from an interesting and an expected visit through the day from drafting rooms at yale. are one and a half days of philip johnson's jewel and new canaan. here's the real fascist intellectual. i started rummaging through some old papers and then they came across this here, 200 page, or 10200 page filed the f
b. i kept on them and they were watching everything he did from the mid forties to the mid fifty's. gregory, believe that decent housing should be the right of everyone, not just the privilege of very wealthy people. 12 percent of the population is black. there should be a lot of black families living out here. yeah, this is only a beginning, but i think it's wonderful. well, let's see how wonderful it is when a watermelon ryan's come, fly him up. the me. ah, ah, in terms of the neighborhood was supposed to be twice as large to plants was $400.00 homes and only $52.00 were built the f ha at the time. didn't think that integrated neighborhoods
would attractive to the general public and they're providing mortgage insurance. and in their minds that would bring down the value of the home you know, most people in america, the value of those homes and parents passing that on to their children that made the biggest difference african americans were left down. and that, that inability to participate in what created american middle class has a lot to do with the problems we have now. the really interesting dial and that, and think about the longer deeper history of what housings meant in the united states. not just that old question of the american dream,
the battle is the beautiful little city. with a lot of bad habits. the house is beautiful, but golden outside house is tough. oh, as a kid, i didn't really understand how segregated the city was because i never left my areas. one time. my dad to my god, i was house for a week. is like living right outside the city and he had a nice apartment complex and cool every day. brilliant people, a decent car. it wasn't loud at night. it was fun. but when i got back to the city, they got evicted. my dad sent us somewhere for a week just to get the house together. i've moved too many times to count.
i live in so many neighborhoods. it doesn't allow you to gauge what is normal this neighborhood. so pretty much like the same. a lot of these out of the vegas, we used to go all behind them and up in him almost like it's ready to go in and find everything that are left before they got evicted. you know, jack, i'm phone over like the the community didn't feel it be as it does now. you said earlier because whose kids is just having fun. baltimore is a microcosm of many urban areas in america. and it is like dickens would say, the tale of 2 cities. you have great investments in certain parts of town and other
investments looking like a ghost town. baltimore in many ways is the ground 0 for rachel. apartheid in america is where racial voting was invented in 1910 and then racially restrictive covenants were also created. here. we have a miss in this country that the reason neighborhoods are segregated is because people like to live with one another who are of the same race. or because african americans have too little income to move into white neighborhoods. or because there's private prejudice that prevents african americans from buying homes and white neighborhoods. and that's all true. but it's a tiny, tiny part of the truth. there's intentionality with the capital decisions that were made around housing in the forty's and in the fifty's. and i think people are law to sleep thinking that certain things happened by default. rather than by design.
you have the f, j, the va, the federal housing administration, and better ministration. they subsidize home building and suburbs, and then they say is racially exclusive. it means white people can move out to these areas. but what is probably a surprise for a lot of people is that red lighting is created by the federal government. that's when the white bank is drawn red lines around black areas and don't give up. no green. ah ah, your media a reflection of reality? the in a world transformed what will make you feel safer?
tice relation community. are you going the right way or are you being direct? what is true? what is faith in the world corrupted. you need to this end. the so join us in the depths will remain in the shallows ah, in or military mission against dam. we'll conclude on august 31st one phone. so who did a good to us all the quote unquote a young girl and i will bundle you through so much you got to do that, you know, southern company will cut that chicago with what i think that was the place to get a quote to show that this was the right weapon
