Featured on CNN: Lack of new housing and the Impact of Rising Costs on Tenants

Real estate expert Juan Huizar was featured in a CNN video discussing the significant challenges tenants face due to rising rental costs. The segment highlighted the alarming trend of increasing rental prices and the risk of eviction for tenants facing financial setbacks, especially in Southern California.

Huizar provided insights into the complexities of building new housing, citing high land acquisition and construction costs, and stringent regulations as major barriers for developers. This limited supply of rental units drives up competition and prices.

The CNN feature underscored the urgent need for solutions to make housing more affordable and accessible, aiming to spark conversations and drive action towards a balanced housing market in Southern California.
