Affordable housing continues to be a challenge for communities across the country. Construction costs continue to rise and developers are facing complicated funding and zoning restrictions, among other challenges. Access to housing is crucial for a healthy community, and the City of Duluth, Minnesota, is working to support people experiencing homelessness through several affordable housing projects. Center City Housing Corporation, based in Duluth, develops affordable housing and offers a wide range of services for those looking to get back on their feet, such as help with finding a job, transportation, taking care of taxes and other paperwork, and support for alcoholism and other addiction. Its latest development in Duluth, Birchwood Apartments, provides permanent supportive housing for 30 adults struggling with homelessness and behavioral health issues. To discuss how the City of Duluth and St. Louis County are working to develop more affordable and supportive housing, we are talking to Duluth Mayor Emily Larson, St. Louis County Commissioner Patrick Boyle, Center City Housing's Executive Director Nancy Cashman, and Board President Pete Johnson.

It's no secret that Denver's a pretty expensive place to live these days. But there's hope — in recent years, voters have approved measures to help ease the burden of high housing costs. Still, there's a lot of mystery around how, exactly, affordable housing gets built in Denver. Today on the show, Host Bree Davies speaks with developer Kimball Crangle of Gorman & Company, who has built affordable housing all over Colorado, to explain how it works, why it's important, and how you can help. Also: Denver recently proposed a new affordable housing policy.

When it comes to “affordable housing,” politicians love selling the public on more mandates, larger subsidies and ever-more government “solutions” to the crisis. However, in reality, those are the very types of policies that caused much of our modern troubles with home affordability in the first place. In this episode of “Free to Offend,” Howard Husock, author of the new book The Poor Side of Town: And Why We Need It, discusses the way government has systematically destroyed “naturally-occurring” forms of affordable housing. From early Soviet-style housing projects to today's mix of subsidies and mandates, government intervention has a long history of wiping out the kind of housing options that used to be available to families of modest means.

Public lands have become a refuge for many people who can't afford housing in the west and who are rejecting certain societal norms that no longer serve them well. For some, becoming vehicle-dwellers and nomads is a way to take back control of their lives. This way of life was portrayed in Chloe Zhao's award-winning film “Nomadland” which starred Frances McDormand and featured a number of real-life nomads. While vehicle-dwelling and nomadism are not new, the pandemic has exacerbated the existing housing crisis and “push” factors that have made more people choose nomadism. It's also given rise to community tensions for those who use public lands solely for recreation. We'll learn more about nomad living experiences and how they're pushing the bounds of how we've traditionally thought about the use of public lands.

Learn More About House Academy Here The Psychology of Affordable Housing (HA 1620) Transcript: Steven Jack Butala:Steve and Jill here. Jill DeWit:Hi. Steven Jack Butala:Welcome to the House Academy Show, entertaining real estate investment talk. I'm Steven Jack Butala. Jill DeWit:And I'm Jill DeWit, broadcasting from the Valley of the Sun. Steven Jack Butala:Today, Jill and I talk about the psychology of affordable housing. Every Thursday, Jill and I have a call, we call it the Thursday call. It's a webinar, closed webinar with all Land Academy and House Academy members. And one of my jobs that I've assigned to myself is to kind of give everybody a... Let's call it a 10 minute overview on what's happening in the news with real estate, because it's really we didn't use to do it, but this whole COVID thing twisted this housing market all around. In the beginning of COVID, we thought it was going to crash like it did in 2010. So I was trying to prepare everybody, and help everybody with that. And by informing everybody of all these sources... I belong to all these sources of news feeds on real estate. Steven Jack Butala:And so that didn't happen fortunately, in fact it went the other way and we're all a lot more successful for it. I hope you are too. Steven Jack Butala:What I see now predominantly, and as a result of that what I continually go do this research for real estate for the Thursday call is this affordable housing topic. Steven Jack Butala:Over, and over, and over again everyone loves to report on affordable housing, except for the core data tree itself, First American title data tree. The core and ADaM data, which I have tons of respect for, they're real estate data companies. They seem to stay out of it. They seem to know enough to just say, "You know what? The market's going to set itself, and that's it." Steven Jack Butala:And it could end right there, but that's not what happens. This day and age it's just a current event, affordable housing is a cool thing to talk about. Steven Jack Butala:Why? Because people have this perception that they can't afford houses, but that's just not the case at all. They absolutely can afford a house, and in fact I'll get into it in a minute. Steven Jack Butala:Before we get into it, let's take a question posted by one of our members on the landinvestors.com online community, it's free. And don't forget to subscribe on the Land Academy YouTube channel, and comment on the shows you like. Jill DeWit:Charlie wrote, "I have some questions about a title close versus a real estate attorney close. Number one, what does it mean when somebody says it's an attorney closed state? Are there no title companies in those states, or is that an extra step on top of what the title company's already doing?" Jill DeWit:Should we answer them in order, or just go through them all? Steven Jack Butala:Yeah, sure. Steven Jack Butala:Go ahead, Jill. Jill DeWit:So number one is yes, there are states, really only one that I can think of in particular. Steven Jack Butala:New York. [crosstalk 00:02:34] Jill DeWit:Yeah. Jill DeWit:That require an attorney basically to oversee the transaction. And, usually there's an attorney at the title company that's overseeing it all. And I've had some transactions like this, where in other states they still have an attorney overlook their transactions, even though it's not required. It's just kind of an extra layer of insurance for them. So that's what that means. Jill DeWit:"Number two, I've also heard it's faster with a real estate attorney" And I'm partially the problem myself here for this one, because I really promote this. "Can I ditch my title company in Texas and do everything with an attorney?" Steven Jack Butala:Hell yes. Jill DeWit:Yeah. Steven Jack Butala:And I would encourage you to do that. Jill DeWit:That's it. Jill DeWit:So for number two, that's my now new way of getting deals done. First I'm going to try to find attorney nearby,

I first met Lou Brown a few years ago. We're in the same mastermind together and I got to hang out with him last week. He's been in the industry for about 40 years and has been through several cycles with a lot of wisdom to share. Lou was first introduced to real estate as a kid when he found out a friend of his mother's was able to buy up properties to cover her own mortgage. It stuck with him, and he decided to learn as much as he could so he could do it himself. Through his own investing, he got his mother out of debt when he was only 19 years old.Lou found a way to make some loopholes in the trust creation process work for him, which has helped him weather a lot of the downturns we've seen over the years. Today, he owns properties in 6 different states. After the 2008 crash, he flipped the script on his strategy and changed his business model to serve potential homebuyers who had bad credit or maybe not enough money for a traditional down payment. His program, Certified Affordable Housing Provider, offers a path to homeownership in the buyer's home marker through a membership program, which also allows him to turn a profit immediately. With such incredible resilience and the ability to stay above water throughout several economic downturns, Lou's really quite an inspiration. He's offering listeners a free copy of his book, “Doing Good While Doing Well”, through the link below, so make sure you check it out.What's Inside: How Lou got into real estate at a young age.Ways to make trusts work for you in real estate.How flipping the script helped Lou stay afloat throughout cycles.Why it's easier to sell to someone when you know what they want.Mentioned in this episode: REI Network on YouTubeGavin on InstagramStreetsmartinvestor.comGetdoinggoodbook.comCertifiedaffordablehousingprovider.com

In a predominantly Black Chicago neighborhood, how one affordable housing program is addressing inequality by enabling homeownership. Read more:Over the years, rows of two-story stone houses and small buildings have fallen into disrepair in the Chicago neighborhood of North Lawndale. The neighborhood was made famous in 1966, when the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. — hoping to turn the focus of the civil rights movement on housing inequalities in the North — moved his wife and four children into a dilapidated apartment there. Decades later, much has stayed the same in North Lawndale, where crime and poverty rates remain high. Last year, more than 2,000 empty lots dotted the neighborhood. But a group of local developers and activists are pushing to change things. They're planning to build 1,000 standalone affordable homes for people who already live in the neighborhood as renters, so they can buy homes and start building equity and generational wealth through homeownership.The approach aims to end poverty by focusing not on rental subsidies, but on finance classes and helping people buy their own homes. But according to reporter Kyle Swenson, it's an approach that will need federal government buy-in to really succeed.

The Argument

Rent is soaring, but close to two-thirds of renters remain on leases because of financial reasons. In 2019, nearly 70 percent of millennials surveyed said that they could not afford to buy a home on account of rising prices, and the number of people in the United States without shelter has increased by about 30 percent in the past five years. We're in a housing crisis.There's a ton of debate on how we should go about solving these issues, particularly in dense cities. People who are for building more housing units in cities argue that zoning restrictions should be reduced, which would increase the number of homes, ideally allowing supply to keep up with demand. On the other hand, some residents support strict land use regulations that prevent further development in their areas.Today, Matt Yglesias, a D.C. resident, and Joel Kotkin, who lives in California, join host Jane Coaston to talk about the pros and cons of building more housing and single-family zoning and why moving to the suburbs isn't the only answer. Also, the Times columnist Jamelle Bouie tells Jane about zoning policy in his city, Charlottesville, Va.Mentioned in this episode:“Building Housing — Lots of It — Will Lay the Foundation for a New Future” by Matt Yglesias on Vox“In Defense of Houses” by Joel Kotkin, published in City Journal“How Blue Cities Became So Outrageously Unaffordable,” an interview with the Vox policy reporter Jerusalem Demsas on “The Ezra Klein Show”
