"But when the buyer turned out to be a developer, and when that developer floated a proposal to raze the building and replace it with a trio of small homes, the neighborhood erupted in protest."

They should be building a 3 story, 10 unit apartment on that lot. Building just 3 homes in the middle of a severe shortage of homes won't do shit.

Maybe even bulldoze the whole neighborhood and start building skyscrapers.

You can't stop the march of progress. If it's getting too crowded, NIMBY needs to move.

I just changed my mind.
Hey, no one can complain homes aren't affordable anymore. They even come with solar dryers.

If California looks anything like South Florida where 2 out of five businesses have been vacant for 5 years or more.
I think there's 100,000's of units in South Florida alone just by rezoning commercial land usage. Do we need a vacant building that used to be a Dentist office in a Strip mall with a Circle K on every corner?

Just for reference, allowable lot coverage in R-2A is 40%, so over half the lot will still be open space after the three units are built.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
