Meeting the housing needs of low-to-middle earners

Published on Incomes and Inequality

Increasingly shut out of home ownership and social housing, low-to-middle earners are becoming more reliant on the private rental sector to provide an affordable, long-term home. In order to help address this Resolution Foundation is working on a project to develop a model to support institutional investment in family friendly, affordable, build-to-let accommodation with longer term tenure. 

This briefing sets out:

  • the experience of low- to- middle earners in the housing market;
  • the main barriers commonly identified to increasing institutional investment;
  • the Resolution Foundation’s contribution to this area over the next six months.
