LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT Construction phase Jobs Materials Local fees, taxes, contributions Ripple or feed-back from construction Wages spent in local economy Occupancy phase Earnings spent in local economy
The model does not say build housing to stimulate the local economy Rather, it is job creation that results in increased demand for housing, but remember that…..

BUT NEW HOMES REQUIRE: Fire and police protection Garbage collection Parks and recreational opportunities Roads Correctional facilities Primary and secondary education Etc… INFRASTRUCTURE
Does new construction pay for itself? The benefits of construction & The costs of construction Now that we know:
By the 2 nd year economic impacts offset fiscal costs By the end of the 2 nd year the debt is fully paid off In the 2 nd year, net is $5,441,455 and is $5,680,775 thereafter Yes it does! For every 952 SF units--
Over 15 years, every 952 SF units generate a cumulative $178.9 million in revenue for local governmentsbut only $105.3 million in costs
New Assumptions of the Model Inputs To Model Single Family Average house price: (was $263,201) $197,401 Average raw lot cost: $26,171 Permits/Infrastructure: $5,071 Annual property taxes: $4,131
By the 2 nd year economic impacts offset fiscal costs By the end of the 2 nd year the debt is fully paid off In the 2 nd year, net is $5,441,455 and is $5,680,775 thereafter Yes it still does! For every 952 SF units--
What does 2 years mean? That is, should it be done faster, or is it O.K.? Big purchases take time to pay off. Car loans now last 5 years, and many lease! How fast did you pay off your student loans? How fast are your kids paying off theirs? Did you pay off your home in 2 years?
How Large Are Non Property Tax Revenues Single family property taxes are $5,508/unit per year but, yearly revenue is $11,624/unit per year, which is 111% more. Clearly, property taxes are not the whole story!
A Closer Look at Primary and Secondary Education 12.6% attend private schools nationally 1.7% are Home schooled nationally 0.4 school age children/MF unit nationally 0.6 school age children/SF unit nationally TX school aid is $92 million or 51% of budget
