It was a fairly slow week in housing news.

The LA Times had a cute profile of a Chilean- and Ukrainian-American couple who built a pair of ADUs for their aging parents, an update on the Skid Row Housing Trust going bust, and a piece on how higher mortgage interest rates are discouraging would-be home sellers. A new ApartmentList report found that Greater LA permitted 2.5 new homes per 1,000 residents in 2022, down from 2.5 in 2004 and 3.3 in 1990.

Further afield, the Builders Remedy has come for Palo Alto, New York governor Hochul’s housing plan continued to rankle the NYC suburbs, and a TikToker is attracting transplants to Peoria, IL.
