Los AngelesHousing in general will continue to be the biggest topic in 2019. Millennials continue to struggle to achieve homeownership and multifamily rents continue to rise, putting pressure on affordability rates. As a result, housing policy is expected to take center stage as the 2020 election heats up this year. This is especially true in California, where affordability has already been a at the forefront of political debate.

“I think that as more and more 2020 democratic hopefuls throw hats into the ring for president, we’ll hear more discussion of housing plans,” Igor Popov, chief economist at Apartment List, tells GlobeSt.com. “For California, a blue state with contentious housing politics, this could mean that local politicians get some political cover to tackle new initiatives.”
