Informed Decisions Seminar on Housing Affordability

The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute has released a landmark report on the rapid appreciation of housing prices in Utah and the threat to affordability. Researchers found that Utah’s rapid employment and demographic growth has produced exceptionally strong demand for housing, which in turn has put upward pressure on housing prices. A housing shortage has ensued, with the supply of new homes and existing “for sale” homes falling short of demand.

The research links on this page includes the full Gardner Business Review that details the rise in housing prices and the threat to affordability, and a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the data.
