CREW Network proudly presents an enlightening virtual event featuring Sharon Wilson Géno, President of the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), and Caitlin Sugrue Walter, Ph.D., Vice President of Research at NMHC. Together, they will dive deep into the evolving narrative of rent control, redefined as rent regulation, and unveil NMHC’s latest findings from their comprehensive rent control literature review, offering fresh perspectives on how rent regulation impacts both housing providers and residents.

Topics to be covered include:

Supply Reduction: Rent regulation often reduces the supply of available rental housing. By disincentivizing investment, these policies can lead to fewer new rental units being built, exacerbating housing shortages.

Mobility Barriers: Rent control can create barriers to mobility, trapping residents in units that no longer meet their needs and making it harder for new renters to find housing in regulated areas.

Disproportionate Benefits: The benefits of rent control tend to be skewed towards higher-income, older, and white residents. These groups are more likely to occupy rent-controlled units, leaving low-income and minority renters at a disadvantage.

Property Value Impact: Rent regulation significantly reduces the value of both regulated and nearby unregulated rental properties. This decrease in property value leads to lower real estate tax revenues, impacting local government budgets and services.

Unintended Consequences: Instead of addressing housing affordability, rent control can lead to higher rents in the uncontrolled market, poorer housing conditions due to lack of investment, and overall negative impacts on neighborhood quality and renter well-being.

This is your opportunity to engage with leading voices in the field, expand your understanding of rent control's implications, and empower your professional stance in the commercial real estate landscape. Join us to explore the data, debate the perceived benefits and drawbacks, and discover what the future holds for rent control policies.
