Wired: 7 Smart Ways To Design Housing That’s Actually Affordable

image from

I don’t quite know how but I do know that I am driven to find a way to change the face of affordable housing here in the Springs. There is a disparity in the most oft requested price points vs. what’s on the market. This disparity isn’t one that’s easily bridged for a renter, or someone who isn’t in a position or doesn’t want to buy.

Wired has 7 options here…I really like the idea of the modular homes and think something like this could be done here.

From the inbox: How do I rent my house out?

Good question! For a variety of reasons, you may want to rent your house rather than sell…give me a ring and we can run the numbers to make sure you are informed of all the options. Investment property can be a good source of income but it’s not without risk. If renting is the way to go, check out, “How to Rent Your House: The Definitive Step by Step Guide” from Bigger Pockets!
