Michele Adair, CEO of Housing Trust, joins us and explains how her organization builds and manages affordable housing for people on a very low to moderate income.
We're going to find out the difference between social housing and affordable housing. Michele highlights some important factors affecting household affordability. It’s not just about first home buyers wanting to get onto the ladder. So what are the gaps in the system?
Here’s some of what we covered:
What are alternative models for property investment and will they provide more affordable housing?
Why households spending 30% or more of total household income, in rent, or in mortgage repayments, are in housing stress.
What happens when life throws a curved ball & you can’t afford a roof over your head. How much ‘buffer’ do you need?
Can good urban design & planning eliminate social problems?
Why everyone deserves a decent home & why it’s Housing Trust’s vision.
It’s an insightful episode, we hope you enjoy listening.
