Policy Position: Housing Inventory Shortages

Housing Supply
Legislative and regulatory policies should support the development and redevelopment of housing for all income levels. With housing inventory at critically low levels, policymakers are urged to continue to seek creative, innovative ways to increase housing supply. Special attention should be directed to the shortage of workforce housing and to identify policies that increase this inventory.

Ohio REALTORS shall work to better understand the housing needs and gaps that exist in the state. A coalition of industry partners may provide additional creativity and guidance to better understand how policymakers can best develop policies to increase housing inventory across the state.

While Ohio REALTORS supports policies to encourage housing inventory, it opposes expensive and unfair requirements to reach a more plentiful housing market.
