Opinion: Adam Hertz understands Missoula’s housing crisis and complexity of solutions

Throughout my 45 year career in real estate I worked with builders, nonprofits, and local and state governments to provide housing that Missoula families can afford.

We have had some successes, but unfortunately high demand, stagnant wages and huge increases in the cost of building new housing have created the worst housing crisis Missoula has ever seen.

A pet peeve of mine is when people running for office say that the only solution is raising wages. It is true that higher wages are a part of the solution, but truly solving our housing crisis will require much more.
