Affordable housing is a subject of national attention, given the effect that the pandemic has taken on workers, families, businesses and communities. It’s no different for Littleton; as we’re seeing average cost of rent has increased by 12% year-over-year (rentcafe.com).
As of August. Littleton average price for purchasing a home increased by 14.0% year-over-year (redfin.com). With an average median home cost of $488,600 for Colorado, Littleton residents encounter a media home cost of $627,000 (bestplaces.net). We are a city in demand, for good reason. But we must take steps to ensure those essential to our community, can also afford to live in Littleton.
I will listen to the many voices representing our community and will take the steps necessary to create smart growth and expand on affordable housing opportunities.
