The median home price in Hawaii has soared to $730,000. It’s no surprise. Experts forecast it will hit the $1 million dollar mark in a few years. BIA-Hawaii has advocated that an increase in the supply of housing AT ALL PRICE POINTS is desperately needed to help slow increases in the price of housing. It’s a simple supply and demand issue: an extreme shortage of homes increases prices. But what other negative impacts will we experience from a housing shortage?


Three panels of speakers will address far-reaching impacts to Honolulu’s economy, education system, and to employers & employees alike caused by our housing shortage. And they will propose sensible solutions that policymakers and business can immediately act upon to restore our broken housing market.
