Hundreds In Denver’s Affordable Housing Program May Be Forced To Sell

Listen Now

Hundreds of homeowners in Denver got some terrible news recently.

They're not technically supposed to be living in the houses they bought, and might have to sell them at a substantial loss. The city of Denver has given the homeowners six months to fix things, but it remains unclear how homeowners will react.

Some will take a loss from the original purchase price, others will give up equity they've gained in Denver's soaring housing market.

Reporter Brandon Rittiman of 9News broke the story. He joins Ryan Warner to talk about what this means for homeowners and for affordable housing in a city that desperately needs it.
