Oregon faces a housing shortage. With rent control restricting owners of older homes from increasing rents beyond a set percentage, developers are unrestricted to set the rent for new homes as necessary. This is most likely to encourage the continuation of new home construction allowing developers and homeowners to see a return on investment that offsets the development.
