Thousands of affordable rental homes will ‘take off the market this year’

Everybody’s Home spokeswoman Maiy Azize says 6,600 affordable rental homes “will disappear from the market this year” after the affordability program was scrapped in 2014.

“We are calling on the federal government to start building 25,000 social housing units every year for the next 20 years and that is all we have to do to close the deficit,” she told Sky News Australia.

“Right now they’re promising to build 20,000 homes over the next five years, which is a real drop in the ocean compared to what’s needed.”
