Housing 101 for Regionalists Workshop

November 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This workshop will provide community leaders with a home-field advantage when it comes to addressing housing issues. Join us to learn more!
High performance housing strategies are ones that achieve the right mix of housing and strike just the right balance between the quantified local housing needs and the market-related tools that are available. The Housing Optimization Market Empowerment (H.O.M.E.) Method™ views housing through a regional lens (citywide, countywide, multi-county) and using a top-down, bottom-up approach, creates a customized housing production system based upon a community’s housing market potential. Housing Optimization happens when communities seek to build enough of the housing that buyers seek to buy and renters seek to rent, at the price points they can afford. Market Empowerment happens when communities know what they want, are willing to do what it takes to make it happen and refuse to settle for less. This workshop is designed to provide community leaders with a home-field advantage when it comes to addressing housing issues. A trendy topic, housing policy is often considered within a limiting geographic scope and/or without proper quality of life context. Tips, tools, and guidance for how to address housing needs through a regional approach and broader-based strategy will be shared.
