Debunking the (un)Affordability Myth!
SF Affordability Actual Data
The $ 450K "median" price of a San Francisco ownership housing unit that the media quotes to show unaffordability is very misleading regarding HOT.
Here is actual data on average prices of rental apartment units in multi-family buildings sold in SF between January 2000 and April 2001.
Source: Old Republic Title Company
|Size of bldg
||Total # units sold
|| $ 258,304
These are the actual prices at which these units were sold. They are definitely "affordable" for a large number of SF tenants. There is sufficient difference between these prices and the "condominium" value, for both tenants and owners to come out ahead by making a HOT win-win purchase bargain.
The value as a rental unit is much lower than for a condominium - we encourage tenant and owner to cooperate for mutual benefit, and share the gain in value.
HOT can make homeownership affordable for SF tenants again!
Its time to debunk the (un)affordability myth!
