NAA Debuts New Rent Control Explainer Video

Rent Control Explainer Video

In an effort to shine a light on the unintended consequences of rent control to the broader public, the National Apartment Association has created this video explaining how regulating rents reduces housing supply, discourages improvements to apartment communities, and increases market-rate rents. The result is higher rents and less affordable housing for everyone, with low-income individuals and families hit the hardest. In short, rent control hurts everyone, including those it was originally intended to help. 

We hope that this resource will be helpful to all our members and affiliates by showing how rent control is an ineffective, misguided policy tool.
