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.

Session will discuss:

  • Horizontal and Vertical Financing

  • Construction and Infrastructure Costs

  • Attraction: Developers + Spurring Growth

  • Tax Credits
