Ensuring homeownership for Californians – both young and old – starts with increasing supply to end our state’s housing availability and affordability crisis.
We can’t afford to wait any longer. It’s time to get serious on supply.
This situation is dire. In a recent survey, 53% of Californians said they were considering moving to another state due to high housing costs. Even worse, a higher share of young people is at risk of leaving California.
We must ask ourselves: where will our children live? If we fail to build more housing, the same California Dream will be out of reach for our kids and future generations.
That’s why, as REALTORS®, we’re proud to champion legislation that increases the supply of housing. This includes policies that increase density in areas near transit and major job centers and hold local governments accountable on their housing goals.
Add your name to urge California’s leaders to support policies that increase the housing supply and end California’s housing crisis. Our children’s future depends on it.
Policies That Increase The Housing Supply
SB 50 (Sen. Wiener): Housing Development Around Transit
Encourages the development of mid-rise, multi-family unit, housing construction around major transit hubs and employment centers. While this bill failed in January, C.A.R. remains committed to passing similar legislation that dramatically increases housing production.
SB 330 (Sen. Skinner): Housing Accountability – PASSED!
Creates certainty for developers constructing new housing units, if the development is consistent with local planning, zoning and design requirements. Streamlines the local permitting process for 5 years in cities with more than 5,000 residents and where rents exceed 130% of the national average.
