KQUED recently published a more in-depth look at what is driving California’s housing prices, highlighting five main drivers of the Golden State’s sky-high real estate valuations.

The article is enlightening because it shows the complex array of issues housing advocates face as they work to make more of the state’s housing stock attainable to local families.

The Mountain Housing Council is deeply involved in confronting these challenges.
