This has always been the most difficult part of living in the bay area, we can’t afford to house our teachers with affordable rentals.

$3,692 rent/month 2BR/2BA in the bay area

Average cost of renting a two-bedroom in 2016: $3,692

Cost sharing: 2 people

Income needed to pay rent: $216,129

Most people in the bay area, share a room in an apartment, condo or house. Most engineers fear that they will never be able to buy a house in the bay area. The average cost of a house/land in Mt View, California is $2 Million. Many more are sharing their place, some even converted their garage or living room as a bedroom. Some live in a big trailer or van parked near their workplace.

Many envision to work in the valley for some years and buy a house outside of California to raise a family. We have one of the best schools in the bay area but if half of monthly income goes to paying house rent, how will our children afford to buy their own house in the future.

Email motherhealth@gmail.com for a modular house, circular shape, made in N Carolina at $25k per 500 sq ft size and if you want to share the cost of buying a house, invest in remodeling more rooms for airbnb. In Palo Alto, a room is rented out from airbnb for $80 per night and $135 per night in Mt View whenever there is a big conference in one of the high tech companies. We all have to join forces to build affordable homes. Turn vacant government buildings and spaces to build rooms for teachers and the poor and middle income.

Vacant city lands for affordable housing

New York City’s scarcity of inexpensive land is often cited as an impediment to building more affordable housing, but the comptroller’s office has identified more than 1,000 city-owned vacant lots across the boroughs that have been sitting idle, most for more than 30 years.

In the bay area, there are city lands that are vacant that should be allocated for affordable housing to show our care to the middle class and low income families and millenials.

Our population, those working in the high tech and non-high tech can no longer afford the high cost of housing in the bay area.

In a rented house, about 7 working adults are cramped to share the cost of $6000 per month house rent.  How can our millenials and families afford housing in the bay area?

Please email your comment to motherhealth@gmail.com to share and find solution to bay area’s high costs of housing.

If New York turns all its vacant lots for affordable housing, bay area cities should follow the same.
