Champion Real Estate Co. CEO Bob Champion said the state is seeing a housing shortfall of 3.5 million to 4 million units, a number that could grow to 6 million units by 2030. Champion estimates Los Angeles needs to manufacture 2 million units of housing in the next 10 years to keep up with demand. He said currently the city is only producing 22,000 units of the 180,000 units needed annually to meet the minimum demand…. “It’s not an affordability problem,” Champion said. “It’s a supply problem. The lack of supply is pushing up the cost of housing in areas that are most desirous to live.”
