The facts speak for themselves. The median home sales price increased twice as fast as wages from 2010-15 and average apartment rents are up nearly 50% region-wide since 2006. What does this mean? Everyone, young professionals included, is having a hard time finding a home due to the cost of living in Charleston and we need your help to solve it.

To address challenges like housing attainability, we have to clear up misconceptions and share the facts of our housing situation. Anton Gunn will shed some light on our region’s housing attainability woes and share key ways you can help advocate for smart growth policies.

Speaker:

Anton Gunn, Housing Attainability Task Force, Charleston Metro Chamber and Executive Director of Community Health Innovation and Chief Diversity Officer, MUSC

Tuesday, June 19
8 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
