These are some of the findings.

  • Families continue to decline in Littleton – Housing Study update showed a decline from 29% in 2010 to 24% in 2018
  • Single family homes are too expensive for families
  • Rising housing costs continue to outpacing income growth
  • Growth of housing stock not keeping up with population growth
  • We need more inventory
  • High housing costs are keeping people from transitioning to homes that fit their current stage or situation of life (families – single (or coupled) adults – disabled adults – seniors)
  • Families looking to expand
  • Aging residents looking to downsize
  • Single adults wanting to be homeowners
  • Many single family homes are too large for one or two people, yet most house only one or two people
