 Housing and Property
Effects of Mixed-Income, Multi-Family Rental Housing Developments on Single-Family Housing Values
 

Regional Council received information on a study conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) about the effects of Mixed-Income, Multi-Family Rental Housing Developments on Single-Family Housing Values.

The MIT study shows that there are no significant differences in house price changes over time when comparing homes located close to the mixed-income development and elsewhere. These findings confirm the research results of a similar study conducted in June 1992.

Regional Council directed staff to update the 1992 Housing Department Study known as "A Property Values Case Study: An Analysis of the Effect of Non-Profit Housing on neighbouring Residential Property Values" with current information.
