Hey, Mr. President, what about removing lumber tariffs to make homes affordable?

May 21, 2019By

Canadian softwood lumber used to build U.S. homes currently carry tariffs of about 20%. That adds $9,000 to the price of a typical new home and more than $3,000 to the cost of a multifamily unit, NAHB said. At a time when all eyes are on U.S. housing affordability issues, the trade dispute with Canada is “needlessly driving up housing costs,” Greg Ugalde, chairman of NAHB, said in a statement.
