I just can’t afford the internet, ugh no. It’s a lot of money that I don’t have. No, it’s ridiculous.“ —Vergennes Resident
“[I pay] $130 a month, just internet. And that’s the lowest price that I could do because I have three kids and myself and I need internet. So I can’t have crawling speeds otherwise they can’t do their Zoom calls.” —Brattleboro Resident
“Technology changes daily and for our property management team to not only recognize this BUT really be committed to helping each of the tenants transition into the technological era is truly a gift.”

Today’s housing market is broken. A lack of housing limits people’s mobility. Seniors who are overhoused cannot move to a more appropriate home; workers who want to secure better jobs cannot find a home in strong employment centers; people who are ready to purchase homes cannot find one they can afford.
While reduced mobility is true for everyone, it really impacts people with less financial resources.
Why is there not enough housing here? Economists and others provide data and analysis about demographic and economic trends that impact housing supply and begin to explain some of the issues.
