New Study Shows Affordable Housing Does Not Negatively Impact Property Values

The MIT Center for Real Estate released a study today that concludes that mixed-income rental housing developments in Massachusetts do not the lower property values of nearby single family homes. The study includes case studies of seven projects in the six communities of Mansfield, Littleton, Norwood, Randolph, Wilmington, and Woburn.

All of the projects are mixed income rental developments built under Chapter 40B between 1985 and 2000.

The authors compared sales prices of single family homes nearby the mixed income developments ("impact areas") with sales prices in the community at large ("control area") over a long period to time. They concluded: "The empirical analysis for each of the seven cases indicated that the sales price indexes for the impact areas move essentially identically with the price indexes of the control areas before, during, and after the introduction of a 40B development."
