Study Purpose. This study is separate and independent from GoSection8. It is a partnership between Teachers College, Columbia University, GoSection8, and Great Schools. With funding from the Arnold Foundation, researchers from Teachers College, Columbia University are studying whether offering school information alongside rental housing listings on GoSection8.com causes families to move to neighborhoods with higher-performing public schools. Results will be used to provide GoSection8, Public Housing Authorities, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development information about how and whether to offer school information alongside rental housing listings.
"We recently entered an agreement with one of our long-standing third-party relationships to build homes that will be purchased by that third-party in a stand-alone rental community," Lennar President Rick Beckwitt said on the company's earnings call. "This community is in Florida and is the first in what we believe will be an ongoing business strategy and relationship where we build and sell homes in bulk on land owned by third parties with no lease-up risk."
