"It’s the under-utilization of land that is the issue. Smaller homes on “generous” lots is going in reverse. We need high rises with community amenities like schools, parks, gathering spaces, etc. clustered around them. For good examples, look at many urban areas in Europe. We just can’t keep building single-family homes and expect to meet housing demand. Some homes will be built for sure, and I don’t expect family lifestyle expectations to change (i.e. desire for single-family house with yard), but density will help relieve a lot of the pricing pressure on certain demographics (younger, less wealthy, seniors, etc.)."
