Does rent stabilization actually work?
Yes! There has been a significant amount of research done showing how rent stabilization policies support communities and do not actually contribute to overall rising rent costs, as some may think. Here are some resources:
- Human Impact Report: Stable Homes, Healthy Communities: How rent stabilization will support a healthy Colorado
- Policy Link Report: Our Homes, Our Future: How Rent Control Can Build Stable, Healthy Communities
- Urban Habitat Report: Strengthening Communities through Rent Control and Just-Cause Evictions. Case studies from Berkeley, Santa Monica, and Richmond
