. . . And Ask Yourself “Why Not Now?”
|Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not? —— Robert F. Kennedy
The “why nots” of Urban Fair Trade
WHY?: People want to own their own homes, but they also need the means to achieve that goal.
Why Not? The Means: Family recipes are an asset. Sweat equity is an asset. Urban Fair Trade can guide you through the process of converting those assets into a rehabbed home that you can afford.
WHY?: Companies don’t have endless flows of cash to buy suitable promotional services.
Why Not? Barter: Urban Fair Trade offers advertising access to a highly-motivated base of consumers and local businesses on trade through B2B Moonlighting.
WHY?: It is necessary for a non-profit to solicit income in order to perform the duties for which it was created.
Hearth & Home
Even without savings, nearly everyone has recipes that have been handed down through the generations — Each family’s real “family jewels”.
We created B2B Moonlighting, a barter exchange service, to have a financially-sound method for converting those “jewels” into a down payment for a home.
With about thirty recipes, a home buyer can earn about 3% of the cost of a home. That’s enough to qualify for one of the many “first-time home buyer deals that are available.
Urban Fair Trade gets content for multiple, folk recipe cookbooks to add to our publishing operation and the community gets a jobs boost from construction happening where it wasn’t before.
An individual or family can accrue even greater equity in their new “castle” by getting the financing for a rehab and hiring the sub contractors themselves.
(We have people ready to make that happen, even for prospective house flippers who have little or no experience at all)
