The Potential and Challenges of Using Manufactured Housing to Expand Homeownership Opportunities
- Hosted By:
- Joint Center for Housing Studies
Manufactured housing has the potential to reduce the cost of building good quality, entry-level homes. However, it can be hard to site these homes, particularly in cities and suburbs where restrictive regulations and a poor reputation pose significant barriers. Chris Herbert, The Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies's Managing Director, will discuss a series of papers that assess the costs, obstacles, and potential of manufactured homes to support affordable entry-level homeownership.
