The Housing crisis has come home.
In northern Arizona, our high housing costs are having an impact on families and individuals as the cost of housing far exceeds what low- and moderate-income households can afford. Median home price for a single-family home in Flagstaff was $435,000 in 2019. Average rental rates have consistently gone up over the past five years. Now, an average 2-bedroom apartments costs nearly $1,500/mo. The creation of decent, affordable housing is a community-wide issue and we all are part of the solution. We believe everyone deserves to have a place to call home.
