Welcome to the Regional + Local Housing Study. This study began in 2018 with the goal of addressing housing questions from localities across the New River Valley.
The study incorporated regional and local data as well as input from 10 focus groups and over 1,100 online survey responses to develop seven regional housing strategies and tailored strategies for each locality. The Regional Commission partnered with the Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech, Housing Forward Virginia, and czb, LLC to provide housing market data collection, analysis training, and strategy development.
A summary of all findings and strategies can be found in the Consumer Report. The Detailed Report contains the unabridged study findings and regional and local strategies.
The Regional + Local Housing Study was funded in part by Virginia Housing and members of the Regional Commission.
