Who are we?

We're 

Californians.

Housing for California is an initiative of the California Association of REALTORS® to support policies that help Californians live and work in the same community.

 

California is the land of opportunity and prosperity, yet ranks last in the nation in housing affordability, in large part due to lack of supply. 

 

Take action to urge our elected officials and policymakers to embrace solutions to California’s housing shortage. Together, we can make housing for all a reality.
