Part of the Council’s goals will be to identify policies which artificially increase the cost of homeownership and reduce regulatory burdens.Nationally, affordability has been the primary roadblock to homeownership, according to First American’s Real Estate Sentiment Index (RESI).“The main burden, affordability, confirms the strong sellers’ market conditions from 2018 have continued in many markets in early 2019, as demand outpaces supply and prices continue to rise,” said First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming.To increase affordability, HUD laid out a plan for the new Council, which includes taking action to reduce Federal regulatory and administrative burdens that discourage private investment and housing development and streamline statutory, regulatory, and administrative burdens that inhibit the development of affordable housing supply.
