If materials and land are so expensive and hard to get a hold...

There is a non-profit around here that is talking about building homes and selling the house on leased land. This is supposed to lower the cost of "owning" a home, which can be inherited by the heirs. Lease on the land is something like 200 years, so it offers generational building of wealth.

There is also an effort in our city to eliminate R1 zoning, which IMO will just allow for investors to charge more per bedroom unit when they convert the single family home to a multi-unit. Yes, each unit will be less expensive to rent than the single family home, but the sum of the units will be much greater than the single family rental.

FWIW,

IP,
who expects to convert her SFH rental to an over under duplex and build a tiny home in the back yard, per new zoning...not great for families who need 4 bedrooms but great for investors and people with homes to sell
