Discussion going on at the SVUSD Board Meeting about a possible program that helps teachers with up to 50% of the down-payment so that they could buy a home in the areas where they teach. LOVE that idea!
Obviously, there is a lot to explore and figure out IF something like this were to happen, but it all starts with talking about it.
We NEED programs like this for teachers, public servants and really everyone who needs a little help and push to help them make their homeownership dreams come true in such an expensive housing market area.
Marina EarlHow about paying teachers in the district a living wage?

Becka YorkI say yes!! I'm a teacher, and make way less money than my husband, but with our combined incomes we might actually be able to afford a mortgage if we could get help with the down payment (and that would still be a huge chunk of our paychecks with what housing is at right now). I really don't know how single income teachers or even households with two teacher incomes can afford to live here. My job as a special education teacher is rewarding and I love it, but it is not always easy, and with 100% of my monthly income having to go towards rent or a mortgage is just not right. I agree with Marina Earl, if teachers were paid a wage that took into account cost of living in our area, maybe we wouldnt need down payment assistance.

Brandy Elena FloresHow about start building affordable homes instead of luxury condos that cater to bay area commuters and their wallets?

Alyssa DowningIt's too bad the Lennar Homes project is catering to the wealthy. What about the teachers and other hard working people who can't afford $1.5 million dollar homes?

Cheryl RuyleI think this is a very good idea, but it also needs to be coupled with paying our teachers more. It doesn't make sense to me that our schools are so good, the parents have high expectations, and the teachers don't get paid well. We lose too many teachers to Silicon Valley because the pay is so much higher. My husband and I would LOVE to teach where we live, but we can't afford the pay cut to teach here in SV.
