As a result, housing prices are also skyrocketing. Again, that’s good news if you currently own a home in the 716. For those now looking to buy, many are already finding themselves priced out of the market. And those who rent, especially in the city, are dealing with dramatically increasing monthly payments, making the cost of quality rental housing a big burden on our low-income residents.
