The CHA does not own the land that the Lathrop Homes currently sits on. Rumors I've heard indicate that it is privately owned with a lease to the CHA which is about up. The owners want the land back for redevelopment for highest and best use. The CHA has no rights over the land once the long-term lease is ended within the next year or so.

Ongoing rumor, the lease was also not supposed to be renewed in 2000. A lot of work was done on the project when the lease was last renewed. I would expect the project to remain for a while.

What percentage of homes in America are owned free and clear?

The US census bureau does not answer this question directly... According to the 2005 census (, about 33% of owner-occupied homes are owned free and clear. However, this doesn't include the statistics for non-owner-occupied homes. In other words, the owner of the apartment building down the street may or may not have a mortgage on the building. I think it is a good bet that a lower percentage of these income properties are owned outright, which would lower the overall percentage of units that are owned free and clear. This type of census would also not take into account something like the foreclosure explosion because the US census figures only take into account OCCUPIED homes. An overwhelming majority of unoccupied homes are not owned free and clear.
