America's Rental Housing 2020 Report Release
Despite a slowdown in demand, rental markets across the US remain extremely tight. Vacancy rates are at decades-long lows and with the number of cost-burdened renters again on the rise, local governments are increasingly on the front lines of a rental affordability crisis. Earlier this year, Minneapolis became the first large American city to end single-family zoning, a bold and decisive move which has the potential to greatly expand the rental supply and improve affordability. Join us as we release our America's Rental Housing 2020 report in Minneapolis, and discuss the city's innovative plan to address housing affordability.
