I think I see the problem here, Affordable Housing obviously has different meanings to some, this works out to be $614,000 PER Cheap Ass Apartment in the Ghetto.

The article doesn't say how much rent is, but average rents are over $2000, which means it is on a 50-75 Year Plan Just to Break Even!!!

$65,000 gets you a small 3 bedroom 2 bath Manufactured Home complete, delivered and setup

Building “affordable housing” in high cost cities is the definition of total insanity.

That means the politicians will keep doing it—over and over and over again!

I suggest you seek legal advice before signing any contracts.

Where I moved to in rural KY, $50k will get you a nice modest 3 BR home on a fairly big lot. And it’s a university town.

That’s one of the reasons I moved here from Seattle. The closest I could come to the advantages of ex-patriating, without actually ex-patriating.

Not if its rent-controlled. There’s a waiting list to move into one.

Don’t forget there is a health clinic and Market as part of the complex. That obviously raises the value. LOL

I’ve been to south LA. I wouldn’t want to live there. Of course, that was in GTA, but still.

Somebody pays the difference between “affordable” and “true market price.”

$614,285 per unit is ... affordable?

You can get a McMansion ON THE LAKE in the richest county in Georgia, under 1 hour from Atlanta, for that price.

Within the LA city limit $614K is considered affordable housing. In fact, it is considered affordable for a great deal of LA County.

Most people who work in LA live east at the outskirts or just beyond the county limit. Most who work there can’t afford to live there. And many homes 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours drive from LA cost $400k and up.

The only way to find homes in CA that would be in the upper $200k to $300k range is to live in the middle of nowhere CA.

The wife and I left the state more than a decade ago. We thought it was bad then. We never foresaw our state getting as bad as it is now.

Future ghetto, just like all the other government-built housing projects.

I used to think the “projects” I saw growing up in a suburb outside Detroit we dangerous and crime ridden places. True.

But then I had to look up what “Section 8” meant a few years ago after seeing a local news site comment. It is the successor to one gathering place “projects” high rise for poor residents.

A house or an apartment integrated fully into a neighborhood where others earn their way in life by working and pay for their own housing. Some were bought in a distressed sale by the government after a foreclosure and so on. So several people sacrifice, work and earn money to pay for their houses while one or more next door are “Section 8s” who are free to loaf all day.

The Section 8 recipient pays a small honorarium such as $45 or $79 for a monthly rent or house payment of $1,400 or $5,000 for example.

Not all, but many house several relatives not on the contract, many are drug houses or part time prostitution houses and many foster teen or other vandalism and crime in the neighborhood. All have a signed written agreement to not have “violent criminals” or “illegal drug criminals” there-—IF the people really obeyed the rules. Big chance.

Often the good, decent people start to sell and leave. Then more. Sounds like the 1967 through 1970s white flight Michell Obama decried.

Trust me - it's gonna be a new "Cabrini–Green"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabrini%E2%80%93Green_Homes

(Over the years, crime, gang violence and neglect created deplorable living conditions for the residents, and "Cabrini–Green" became a metonym for the problems associated with public housing in the United States.)

First thing that came to mind: The Far Side cartoon with the little kid porcupine playing with a balloon and the dad saying, “Well, this shouldn’t take long...”
