Our April 16 Market Shift Conversations event is a collaboration with ABoR Advocacy and Unlock MLS Research. If you're looking for fresh ways to demonstrate your expertise to clients or help them navigate housing affordability and accessibility challenges (which is, ahem, everyone), you'll want to make time for this event!

First, Unlock MLS Housing Economist Dr. Clare Losey will present a new research study on the impact of lot size on the total cost of homeownership in Central Texas. Then, you'll put that data into action with a Policy Teams-driven panel on proposed changes to the City of Austin’s Land Development Code, including 3-units by right and reducing the residential minimum lot size.

Our panel of experts will discuss the need for these code changes, how these changes will affect your clients, and what Missing Middle Housing could be like in your community. We'll close with an update on current Austin City Council actions related to housing and possible solutions to help fill the gaps in our housing economy.
