Is housing affordability a supply problem or an income distribution problem? And how do housing trends vary by income level?

Chris shares his extensive knowledge of the rental market and market trends, and together, the group covers a wide range of topics – supply, incomes, urban revitalization, suburban trends, generational changes and how the market is being driven by boomers and millennials.
