Black Americans, long accustomed to facing more hurdles on the road to homeownership, may consistently find their investments in residential property undervalued, according to a new joint Brookings Institution and Gallup study released today.

According to “The devaluation of assets in black neighborhoods: The case of residential property,” across all majority black neighborhoods, owner-occupied homes are undervalued by the real estate market at large, and consistently sell or are appraised for lower prices, by an average of $48,000 per home. Nationwide, this amounts to $156 billion in cumulative losses, what the report dubs a “segregation tax.”
