MAHA homebuyer class graduates and new SoftSecond homeowners, Jared and Emily Medeiros, were featured in a story that aired on Monday, June 4 on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. Entitled "After the Housing Bust, Revisiting Homeownership," NPR's Chris Arnold visited the Medeiros' in their Sharon home and introduces listeners to the couple and their 11 month old daughter.

Arnold points out that "five years after the market crash of 2007, the desire to own a home is actually very much alive and well. In a recent poll of likely voters by the Woodrow Wilson Center, 84 percent of respondents said homeownership today is just as important as or more important than it was five years ago. Ninety percent still think homeownership is part of the American dream."
