Multi-family Homes

The Las Vegas Architects at SCA Design can turn your concept for multi-family homes or apartment complexes into an architectural plan. With a shortage of affordable housing in Las Vegas, multi-family homes are a great option. Affordable housing needs are on the rise as many Americans are living paycheck to paycheck with stagnant wage growth nationwide, and now facing Covid-19 layoffs.

Demand for Multi-family Homes:

The demand for multi-family housing is at a 30-year high, according to a 2018 mid-year Freddie Mac report. (1) Nevada has a shortage of 79,620 rental homes affordable and available for extremely low income renters. (3) As the single-family and multi-family housing market supply remains low, the demand for apartment complexes has increased. Vacancy rates are low and rents have increased. (2) The National Low Income Housing Coalition states in a 2018 report, Nevada as the 24th state out of reach state with a $8.25 minimum wage, and an average renter wage of $16.84 and a 2 bedroom housing wage of $18.59. 45% of Nevadans are renters. More affordable apartment building housing is necessary in Las Vegas.  20% of renter households are extremely low income, below the 30% poverty guideline of their median income. (4)
