ICYMI: Rosen Introduces Legislation to Crack Down on Corporate Price Gouging in the Housing Market – Jacky Rosen

2 minutes, 42 seconds Read

WASHINGTON, DC – Last week, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) introduced the Housing Oversight and Mitigating Exploitation (HOME) Act to help lower housing costs for Nevadans by cracking down on price gouging by corporate investors who are buying up housing stock and driving up home prices. It was recently reported that an estimated 15 percent of the single-family homes in Las Vegas are owned by corporate investors, which increases housing costs for hardworking Nevadans. 

This bill would direct the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to investigate price manipulation and price gouging by corporate investors and make it illegal for anyone to rent or sell a unit at an unreasonable price during an affordable housing crisis like the one currently facing Nevadans. Any fines collected from cracking down on corporate investors would be deposited into the National Housing Trust Fund to be used for increasing affordable housing nationwide.
