The location of most SFRs is another reason why policymakers should consider SFR as a viable affordable housing strategy, according to the report. Many SFR units are close to downtown, on bus lines or other transit routes, established suburbs, or overall more apt to be located in central cities than single-family owner-occupied homes (34 percent compared to 23 percent, according to American Housing Survey data).

Not only does it help builders grow revenue, but it gets them closer to normal levels of production, which has been a real struggle thus far.”
