[ARCHIVED] Housing Needs Analysis Report

Housing Needs Analysis Yachats Cover Image

Whether you rent or look to purchase a home, housing is becoming increasingly expensive for many Oregonians. As housing demand outpaces supply and home prices and rents continue to increase, housing options become limited, especially for low-income households that are most vulnerable to rising costs. The City of Yachats is no exception to these trends. Yachats is the southernmost city in Lincoln County, bounded by the Central Oregon Coast Range to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Currently, there are limited housing options to meet the needs for both existing and future residents of Yachats, and there is no established roadmap for understanding and determining the types of housing that are most needed, and to what degree. Median home values in Yachats are increasing rapidly and are higher than state and county averages. In 2021, 58 percent of housing (453 units) in the city was seasonal, vacant or for-sale. The city’s existing housing stock is largely not affordable to local renters and workers, and competing pressures of seasonal housing and short-term rentals are a concern for many residents. This report will help Yachats understand its housing demand and state of housing supply, determine the types of housing that are most needed and provide recommendations for how the city can adopt strategies that will help produce needed housing.
