BMC Residential Real Estate Conference panel San Diego’s strong economy is one of the factors leading to housing unaffordability, panelists said.

SAN DIEGO—Housing affordability will worsen, San Diego will fall short of becoming a world-class city and the region’s ability to grow in many ways will be stifled if we don’t build to meet residential demand, said speakers at the “17th Annual Residential Real Estate Conference: Outlook 2018,” hosted by the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate at the University of San Diego School of Business.  Speakers emphasized the dire housing situation we are in and said that density and a shorter path to development will help lessen the problem of housing unaffordability that is especially serious in San Diego.
