A HOUSING FORECAST FOR SC
Dr. Joey von Nessen, RESH Marketing Consultants
THE COST OF BUILDING A HOME
Andy White, Developer and Builder
Land represents a large share of the value of homes in much of the country and S.C, these rapidly rising land values are a key driver of recent home price increases—along with labor constraints, building materials costs, and regulatory barriers. Combined, these factors make it increasingly difficult for homebuilders to construct new modest-cost housing, which could accommodate the growing demand for starter homes by millennials aging into peak home buying years. Therefore, finding ways to slow the rise in land prices will be an important part of any effort to address the continued challenge of making housing attainable for more people.
FRAMING THE BIGGER PICTURE: HOW HOUSING MATTERS
Dr. Bryan Grady, SC Housing
An analysis on the state’s housing conditions was conducted in 2019 by SC Housing to help the Authority set its own policies. This overview of Volume 1 will define the dynamics of the SC’s growth to ensure development and preservation of housing that meets the state’s needs.
Session will discuss:
How and where decent housing is out of reach
Supply and demand for housing in local communities
Commute patterns for our state’s employment centers
How local government policies restrict housing choice
Discussion of housing’s impact on other policy outcomes
Nancy Lee, South Carolina Association of Habitat for Humanity

THE MISSING MIDDLE
John Hunt, MarketNsight
South Carolinians love having choices, but when it comes to where we live or how to get around, our choices can be limited. Exploring the “Missing Middle Housing” is primarily about the form and scale of these buildings, designed to provide more housing choices and to be more affordable than other new housing products currently being built. John Hunt will explore new trends to provide attainable housing.
