Oh give me a home where no real estate brookers roam.

Homelessness resolved.
The trouble with Homelessness is the wrong people get involved. Land developers, real estate brokers, and ambitious architects. Not to mention over anxious freeway and parking lot builders.
This might sound funny but it is true. The city comes up with available building space and before you know it others with dollar signs on their minds try to take over. Take over by restricting building codes or applying for luxury apartments or condo permits. Hoping to build large and costly structures to sell at maximum price. And these people have the most money, lawyers, and influence. So more often than not they win and the homeless loses.
All the homeless want is a small structure about 600-square feet with two bedrooms, a bath, and kitchen/living room /dining room combo. Either a single dwelling or high-rise apartment building. Something with low maintenance, low rent, and ease of upkeep. But with a city park nearby.
It makes so much sense. But to the real estate developer it doesn’t. For the homeless sake, the big sellers of land and structures need to be left out of the mix. This is not anti-capitalism but prohomeownerism. Pro homeowner for the homeless. What do you think? What would you recommend? What should be done with folks who do not want a home but just to be left alone in a tint or car.
