Lusk Perspectives, In Partnership with USC Price School of Public Policy

Hosted by Richard K. Green, Director, USC Lusk Center for Real Estate

From 1980-2010, housing construction nationally grew by 54%, while California's housing stock only saw 32% more units; as a comparison, housing construction in California from 1940-1970 grew by 200%. The State of California's Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) estimated that 70,000-110,000 new housing units would have been needed per year to keep housing prices from rising faster than the national average. What arethe most important barriers to new housing construction and how can these barriers be overcome? In this webinar, results from a new survey of California homebuilders, planning commissioners, and housing advocates are presented and discussed. 

The survey, supported by a grant from the California Homebuilding Foundation, highlights the largest and smallest differences in perceptions about the development review process. The survey results are discussed to identify potential ways forward to increase housing in the state.
