THE COST OF BUILDING A HOME

Andy White, Developer and Builder

Burnie MaybankTax and Economic Development Attorney

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

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.
