Thread: Affordable housing and NIMBYs

  1. #1

    Affordable housing and NIMBYs


    I working for a City in California and gathering information on the effects of affordable housing projects on the property values of existing single family housing. I need references, links, or any information that might lead me to studies that have been conducted.

    My hypothesis is that affordable housing does not affect (or diminish) property values. I just need the information to back this up.

    Affordable Housing and NIMBYs

    Check out www.jcpr.org. The Joint Center for Poverty Research's site has a few working papers on economic impact of subsidized housing. I recommend you look particularly at Michael P. Johnson's work. Good luck.
