Readers Respond: On housing affordability

The U.S. as a whole has been grappling with issues of housing affordability, but especially in expensive coastal areas like California.

Everyone has an idea of what it'll take to increase the homeownership rate in America, and the opinions were varied among our readers.

The most popular option, at 36%, was to impose fewer regulations on builders.

But another 32% seemed to think there was another answer beyond the obvious ones.

Only 18% seemed to think the solution was to increase the housing supply, and 14% voted for "more regulations to strengthen affordable housing."

What do you think? There's still time to take the poll.
