Clues Emerge in the Search for Affordable Housing
The search for affordable housing continues, as prices continue to rise nationwide. A key challenge to the quest for affordable housing is that existing homeowners want the price of their home to go up, not down. Affordable housing might not be an impossible dream, however. Inclusionary zoning and greater density or “upzoning” could provide some relief in the low and middle income brackets. Housing advocates also argue that providing housing consumers with more accurate information is an important step towards increased equity.
