ICYMI: Informative Q&A Regarding the Impact of Middle Housing Legislation on Appraisers
Under HB 1110, certain cities must allow up to 6 dwelling units in areas close to transit, and 2-4 dwelling units in other areas. HB 1337 requires cities to allow at least 2 ADUs on all residential lots. These laws mean that cities must allow more housing units to be built – parcels that now could have only one single-family detached house could in the future have 5 or more residential dwelling units. This important change in local zoning to allow more housing will require all sectors of the real estate industry to adjust – this means lenders, appraisers, and REALTORS® as well.
