desperate housing shortage
ABAG’s fair share housing projection for San Francisco: 30,000 units by 2020 and 20,000 by 2006 or about 2,717 units annually

1990 - 2000 saw an annual production of only 1,130 units

Shortage of 1,587 Homes per year

Affordable vs. Market rate housing

Since 1990, Only 28% of units produced were affordable

Desperate Housing Shortage
our goals
Our Goals
  • Find the biggest limitations to further residential production
  • Determine which limiting factors of production might be open to change
  • Gain general incite into the perspective of residential builders and developers
  • Learn about conducting a real world research project
methodology
Methodology
  • Background research
  • Choosing a survey format
  • Creating a survey instrument

  • Preliminary Analysis & Recommendations
background research
Background Research
  • The February 2003 draft of Housing Element of the SF General Plan
  • San Francisco Planning Department “2000 Housing Inventory”
  • Policy papers from SPUR (SF Planning and Urban Research) and HAC (Housing Action Coalition)
  • Speaking with people in the SF Planning Department and the Housing Action Coalition
survey type
Survey Type
  • A phone survey enabled us to contact many different developers in a short time allowing for a reasonable response rate
  • Limited time and resources would not permit for:
    • Face-to-face surveys
    • Mail surveys
    • Focus Groups
  • Currently there is little existing research documenting developer perspectives in San Francisco

Creating a Survey Instrument
  • Determining questions and categories
    • Organizational questions
    • Building and Land Costs
    • Financing
    • Planning Regulation
    • Community Input

formulating a list
Formulating a List
  • Qualifications
    • San Francisco Residential developers and builders
    • One unit/single family to multi unit high-density developers
    • Adequate contact information

Drawbacks of Potential List Sources

  • Mayor’s Office of Housing
    • Very limited list of developers
  • County Clerk/Tax Collectors
    • Service required fees and waiting time for list
  • Residential Builders Association
    • Confidential list of members (not all developers)
  • Habitat For Humanity
    • Limited to large developers
final list
Final List
  • Chosen sources:
    • SF Planning Department (6,800 entries)
    • Habitat For Humanity (100 entries)
  • Filtering the List:
    • Selected entries with adequate contact information
    • Eliminated all duplicate contacts
    • Separated the list into categories by number of units per project

preliminary analysis
Preliminary Analysis
  • Preliminary Analysis
    • Created a SPSS file for data analysis
