Real Estate Technology Helps to Innovate but Affordability Problem Remains

Technology has made a lot of improvements to the housing market, but the core issue of affordability has yet to be solved; building has become more efficient, the mortgage process has become more digital, but ultimately addressing the affordability problem is not an easy fix; Clara Brenner, managing partner at the Urban Innovation Fund, believes the housing crisis is a policy problem; creating new technology for the market is great but until politicians truly begin to address this issue the core problem will not go away; the incremental changes in tech will help set the stage for the future when hopefully voters help elect people that believe in solving affordability.
