We’re going to talk about housing in Utah today. Here are some headlines from the past several months: How tight is Utah’s housing market? Some buyers offer $100K over asking; ‘Hyper-, hyper-competitive’ Salt Lake area housing market is white hot, but are Californians to blame?; What’s driving Utah’s housing crisis? It’s not what you think, says economist; Housing affordability in Utah entering ‘perilous territory,’ study says; The pandemic has supercharged Utah’s housing market.
Today we’ll talk with Christina Oliver, Director of the Housing and Community Development Division in the Utah Department of Workforce Services; Jim Wood, Ivory-Boyer Senior Fellow at the Kem C. Gardner Institute; and Francisca Blanc, Advocacy & Outreach Coordinator with the Utah Housing Coalition.
