hen housing professionals talk about housing in healthy communities, we look for balance: housing options that are affordable to residents in all stages of life and all income groups. These groups generally are represented by entry-level householders, first-time homebuyers and moveup renters, move-up homeowners, empty-nesters, younger independent seniors and older seniors. So how’s our housing health? What do we have, what do we need for housing in Brainerd? A comprehensive housing needs analysis completed in 2015 by Maxfield Research, identified gaps in housing needs among those groups. First, a look at some of Brainerd’s demographics.
