Affordable housing is a complex and constantly evolving business. The intricacies of federal, state, and local regulations, and their contradictions, can be difficult to navigate. My focus is analyzing all these rules and regulations and developing a roadmap for my clients that allows for a smoother development process for their properties and, as importantly, helps to achieve their economic and mission-driven goals.
It’s important to remember that affordable housing is real estate. In addition to the regulatory issues, the development of affordable housing is always a real estate transaction with the same legal issues as in conventional real estate, and it is my job to ensure the real estate transaction is in line with the affordable housing restrictions and regulations.
What we offer is up-to-date knowledge of affordable housing issues. The landscape nationally and on a local level is always changing, and our extensive experience with the agencies, as well as the volume of transactions we handle, ensures that we have the advantage of knowing the latest trends and methods to maximize benefits to our clients.
COVID-19 has dramatically changed the country’s landscape in many ways. Recovery will require a number of resources, including an increase in affordable housing. Federal and local governments are dedicating the necessary attention and capital to address the housing shortage. Our Affordable Housing team is staying on top of all the latest changes in the industry.
