“Housing Affordability in California: Current Challenges and Potential Policy Solutions”

Moderated by Tia Boatman Patterson

Executive Director, California Housing Finance Agency

Social Consequences Discussant:

Assistant Professor Michael Lens, UC Los Angeles

Michael Lens is an Assistant Professor of Urban Planning in the Luskin School of Public Policy at UCLA. Professor Lens' research focuses on disparate outcomes resulting from inequities in housing markets, neighborhood stratification, and effects of housing subsidy programs. His research on housing subsidies and crime has challenged conventional wisdom regarding the housing voucher program, showing that those who receive those subsidies live in much safer neighborhoods than those living in housing constructed with supply-side subsidies. In recent research, Professor Lens is studying job accessibility among housing subsidy recipients, the effect of the housing bust on housing subsidy demand, the relationship between land use regulations and income segregation, and the effect of negative housing equity on mental health outcomes. Professor Lens' research recently won awards from the Journal of the American Planning Association and Housing Policy Debate.

Policy Solutions Discussant:

Professor Kerry Vandell, UC Irvine

Kerry Vandell is the Dean’s Professor of Finance and the Director of the Center for Real Estate at the UC Irvine Merage School of Business. Professor Vandell has researched and consulted widely in the areas of real estate investment, urban/real estate/environmental economics, mortgage finance, housing economics and policy, and valuation theory. He is responsible for development of some of the first models of default risk in the commercial mortgage market, and his recent research on real estate illiquidity provides institutional investors with important tools to ascertain proper allocation to real estate in mixed-asset portfolios. He is currently an NAIOP Distinguished Academic Fellow, a member of the Urban Land Institute, a Fellow and member of the faculty of the Homer Hoyt Advanced Studies Institute, and a past president of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association (AREUEA).

This talk is brought to you by the generous collaboration of the Center for California Real Estate.
