Valley Housing Report

A Home For EveryoneThe Council of Infill Builders is pleased to present "A Home for Everyone: San Joaquin Valley Housing Preferences and Opportunities to 2050 " by Arthur C. Nelson as a contribution to the scholarship on infill development in California.

The report analyzes housing trends and consumer preference surveys and finds that continuing business-as-usual Valley land use policies will leave empty-nesters and first-time renters and buyers underserved.

The report found the following market trends through 2050:

  • Significant projected increases in demand for apartments, condos, and townhomes
  • Sufficient existing supply of large-lot homes to meet 2050 demand
  • Strong and growing demand for walkable, smaller-lot single family homes

The Valley can accommodate much of this new growth on already-developed land, such as low-density urban and suburban centers and commercial corridors and existing nonresidential buildings and vacant land. With only minor changes to zoning and development regulations, cities and counties can ensure more efficient use of land and preserve the region's valuable farmland.
