Cover Story

Shown on the cover is the publication
titled, The State of Florida's Housing,
2000. This document represents the first
of a series of annual reports on Florida's
housing supply and demand. The purpose
of the report is to provide a common
point of reference for debating housing
policy questions, evaluating housing
program performance, anticipating future
housing demand, and aiding in business
decision making.

The State of Florida's Housing, 2000
comprises two volumes. The first volume
is just over 30 pages and begins with a
discussion of demographic patterns in the
state and the need for housing. It
continues with a detailed discussion of
the characteristics of the housing stock
and ends with a discussion of the
movement in house prices and the rate of
appreciation in housing. The second
volume consists of a series of detailed
tables describing the housing stock and
housing demand in each of the 67 Florida
counties. The 200-page second volume is
organized alphabetically by county name.

The production of this first issue of The
State of Florida's Housing, 2000 was
made possible with the partial support of
the Florida Association of Realtors.

Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


The Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing activities during 2000 were divided among the three
basic categories of: Teaching, Research, and Service.

Courses continue to be offered in Housing Economics & Policy and the Residential Track within the
traditional construction management curriculum. In addition to students majoring in construction
management, the Housing Track courses are attracting students majoring in real estate, urban and
regional planning, and law.

The database that was developed to produce Affordable Housing Needs Assessments for the cities
and counties in Florida has served as the basis for production of the first annual edition of The State of
Florida's Housing, 2000. In addition, the database has been used to produce the annual Affordable
Housing in Florida report to the legislature and market studies for several non-profit organizations.

Under contracts from the Department of Community Affairs, the Shimberg Center has initiated a cost
comparison of the Florida Building Code versus previously existing building codes in twelve
locations. The Center also is administering the construction of mobile demonstration units that will
be utilized by regional chapters of the Building Officials Association of Florida to educate
professionals and the public about alternative materials and methods for improving home safety.

Under a contract from the Florida Department of Insurance, the Shimberg Center completed
construction of the second Windstorm Damage Mitigation Training and Demonstration Center in
Escambia County, Florida. A third facility will be constructed in St. John's County during the
coming year.

The Community Outreach Partnership Center program that was begun in early 1996 continued to
serve as a link between the needs of the surrounding Gainesville/Alachua County community and the
resources within the University of Florida in the areas of homeownership, economic development,
neighborhood organization, and youth and family programs. The goal for 2000-2001 is to
institutionalize the program by releasing it to the university's community outreach network and to
expand into housing issues facing the elderly population.

Funding for the Center provided by the University of Florida decreased five percent from the previous
year to a total $248,715. Funded research and outreach activities exceeded $1 million.












INTRODUCTION


The year 2000 saw the country select a new president and the College of Architecture at the
University of Florida select a new name College of Design, Construction, and Planning. In
contrast, the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing continued to focus on its basic three-part
mission of: teaching, research, and service.


Although the Center has taught housing-related courses for several years, a formal "residential
option" within the construction management curriculum of the M. E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building
Construction was approved during 1998 and implemented in 1999. This addition to the curriculum
was the result of requests from the home building industry. The Center's research has been
concentrated in three areas: (1) developing and maintaining detailed quantitative data describing
Florida's changing housing demand and inventory, (2) exploring housing policy alternatives that will
improve access to affordable housing for lower-income households, and (3) documenting the
performance characteristics of alternative building systems and materials. Service activities within
the university have ranged from chairing or serving on supervisory committees of masters and
doctoral students, to serving as faculty advisor for the student chapter of the National Association of
Home Builders, and to serving on various committees within the school, college, and university. The
Center's faculty members also serve on advisory committees or boards of directors for a number of
agencies and not-for-profit housing and community development organizations in Florida. The
Community Outreach Partnership Center project brings together service and outreach activities from
various colleges and departments of the university in response to the needs of the Gainesville
community which, in turn, provides insight into the components of a model that can be applied to
other Florida communities.


The Shimberg Center's active participation in the National Consortium of Housing Research Centers
has provided a national perspective to assessing challenges facing affordable housing. In January
2000 the Consortium sponsored a symposium titled "What's New in Research" at the Annual NAHB
Convention in Dallas where the Shimberg Center presented a paper on "Customer Satisfaction Means
Business." The National Consortium is an association of eighteen universities from around the nation
that have a formally organized center or institute dedicated to the housing sector. A second
organization that provides the Center with a national perspective is the American Association of
Housing Educators (AAHE).









Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


An international perspective has been provided by the Shimberg Center's role as international
coordinator of Working Commission W63:Affordable Housing of the International Council for
Research and Innovation in Building Construction (know as the CIB). During 2000 the Shimberg
Center shifted away from its world-wide role to focus on Latin America. The CIB is a Netherlands-
based organization that serves as secretariat for over fifty special interest groups called working
commissions or task groups. These special interest groups attract a worldwide membership of
researchers and practicing professionals.




TEACHING


Undergraduate Students


During 1999-2000 the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing began to offer a residential track
within the construction management curriculum in the M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building
Construction in the College of Architecture at the University of Florida. In 1999-2000 three students
chose the residential track; in the 2000-2001 academic year that number increased to eleven. The
residential track comprises three required courses:
* Project Planning and Feasibility exposes the student to the process of producing a proposal for
development of a residential project on a specific site. The proposal includes sections on market
analysis, site analysis, project programming, schematic design, project cost estimate, and
financial feasibility. The final product of this project is a design-build proposal that effectively
communicates project viability in a professional manner.
* Creating Affordable Housing gives the student an appreciation for ways to reduce the cost of
housing delivery, factors in the delivery process (including finance, building materials,
construction methods) that contribute to affordability problems, and potential methods to
facilitate the delivery of housing that is affordable to the buyer. Upon completion of the course
the student will be able to identify potential markets and alternative financing vehicles for
affordable housing. They will be prepared to intervene effectively in discussions regarding local
land use and building regulations.









Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


* Housing Transactions for Homebuilders is modeled on the real estate licensing course and
provides an introduction to ownership rights in real property and limitations on those rights, the
transfer of rights, the process of selling a property including contracts and closing, mortgages,
markets, and valuation of property. The emphasis is on providing the homebuilder with a
working knowledge of the sale and leasing of property. Upon completing the course the students
will have an understanding of mortgage types, market opportunities, and the valuation process.
They will also be able to complete the process of selling property including the documents
involved.
The development of the residential track and the course content has been accomplished in cooperation
with the Florida Home Builders Association and a team of eleven builder members that were
designated as a sounding board for the development effort.


The Shimberg Center also continues to offer a graduate-level course titled Housing Economics and
Policy that familiarizes students with basic theories, concepts, terminology, and issues in housing as
well as examining the factors contributing to housing problems and evaluating housing policies.
Upon completion of the course the student is able to estimate the demand for housing, examine the
feasibility of a housing project, and understand the role of government, lenders, and other institutions
in the housing market.


Graduate Students
The Shimberg Center's faculty either chair or serve on committees supervising students conducting
research and developing dissertations, theses, and terminal projects that are required in partial
fulfillment of the requirements of graduate degrees. In 1999-2000 the Center faculty chaired three
doctoral committees with such diverse research topics as construction safety standards, land-use
policies, and historic preservation.


In addition to the graduate-level course in Housing Policy and Finance, the faculty teamed with
faculty from the Rinker School of Building Construction to develop and offer a required graduate
course titled Research Methods in Building Construction. The purpose of this course is to introduce
beginning graduate students to the task of preparing a dissertation, thesis, or master's paper. It also
provides a review of basic statistical methods that many of the graduate students will need in
conducting their research.

RESEARCH


Since the passage of the William E. Sadowski Affordable Housing Act of 1992, the research activities
of the Shimberg Center have been coordinated with the activities of the Florida Department of
Community Affairs. Presented below are summaries of some of the research projects that were active
during 2000 at the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing.


Housing Data Clearinghouse
The 1999 report of the Governor's Affordable Housing Study Commission cited the lack of adequate
data as a major hurdle in performing its task. Similar data concerns have been cited by the Florida
Home Builders Association, the Florida Association of Realtors, and the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation. As a result, the Florida Housing Finance Corporation board established a Housing Data
Workgroup and charged it to consider the housing data concerns that have been raised and to make
recommendations on how to address the concerns and the associated funding considerations. The
workgroup comprised representatives from:


Florida Home Builders Association
Florida Association of Realtors
Affordable Housing Study Commission
1000 Friends of Florida
Local government planning/community development departments (Leon County,
Panama City, Miami-Dade County)
Senate Community Affairs Staff
House Community Affairs Staff
Executive Office of the Governor
Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing
Florida Housing Finance Corporation
Department of Community Affairs
Department of Elder Affairs
Florida Regional Councils Association
Affordable Housing Developers Coalition
Florida Coalition for the Homeless









Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


A proposal was produced by the workgroup after three meetings and with the assistance of
Department of Community Affairs staff. The proposal called for: 1) establishment of a central
housing data clearinghouse that would provide easy access to data on housing need and supply; 2)
web-based access to the housing database; 3) phasing in the clearinghouse over several years; and 4)
housing the clearinghouse at the Shimberg Center. The board of the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation received the proposal and unanimously approved a request from the Housing Data
Workgroup to make a commitment to the Clearinghouse. The FHFC directed staff to go through the
legislative process to procure the necessary funds for FY2001-2002, a total of $221,893, with 50
percent coming out of the state housing trust fund and 50 percent coming out of the local housing
trust fund.


State of Florida's Housing
The Shimberg Center produced the first annual report titled The State of Florida's Housing, 2000.
The Florida Association of Realtors provided partial financial support for this effort. The content of
the report describes not only Florida's existing housing inventory but also the projected need for
housing through 2010. The objective of producing and disseminating The State of Florida's Housing
is to establish an accepted baseline document against which policy and program effectiveness can be
evaluated and for serving as a basis for debating changes to existing policy and crafting new
programs.


Statewide Housing Needs Assessment
The 1994 Legislature directed the Florida Department of Community Affairs to provide funding for
the development of an affordable housing needs assessment methodology to be used by all
jurisdictions in Florida, and to prepare data for each jurisdiction for their use in assessing local need
for affordable housing. The Shimberg Center conducted this work. Although the work was
completed in 1999, the Center continues to respond to inquiries from local governments. Current
research is focused on developing alternative measures of housing affordability, housing condition,
and housing need and retooling for the next round of housing need assessments to begin in 2001.


Windstorm Damage Mitigation Training & Demonstration Centers
During 2000 the second regional Windstorm Damage Mitigation Training and Demonstration Center
was completed in Saint Lucie County, Florida, with funding by the Florida Department of Insurance.
The next facility will be completed in St. John's County in 2001. Funding for a fourth regional center









Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


to be constructed in Miami-Dade County awaits acquisition of additional funding. The primary
purpose of these centers is to create a statewide network of training and demonstration sites for
improving the wind resistance of existing and newly constructed homes. The Shimberg Center serves
as the administrator of the program working with an architect, civil engineering firm, and
construction manager. All land development and construction tasks are performed by local
contractors.


Annual Housing Report
The Florida legislature transferred the responsibility from the Department of Community Affairs to
the Center for producing the annual Affordable Housing in Florida report to the legislature. The
report includes sections: 1) Quantifying affordable housing needs in the state, 2) Documenting the
results of state housing incentive programs, 3)Inventorying affordable housing units resulting from
federal, state, and local programs, 4)Summarizing training and technical assistance and community-
based organization housing activities, 5)Reporting on the status of progress toward DCA housing
objectives, and 6)Recommending housing initiatives for the coming year and priorities for various
target populations. In order to accomplish these tasks, the legislature directed the Shimberg Center
to maintain statewide data on housing needs and production, provide technical assistance relating to
real estate development and finance, operate an information clearinghouse, and coordinate state
housing initiatives with local and federal programs. Working with the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation, the Shimberg Center must review and evaluate housing rehabilitation, production, and
finance programs and evaluate the degree of coordination between state programs and among state,
federal, and local programs. It is the intention of the Shimberg Center to combine The State of
Florida's Housing and Affordable Housing in Florida into a single annual report.


Building Code Cost Comparison
Under contract to the Florida Department of Community Affairs, the Shimberg Center is serving as
administrator of the project to compare the cost of constructing a home under the proposed unified
Florida Building Code with the historical construction cost of the same home built under the
previously effective building code. A total of twelve comparison homes will be built for comparison.
The Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) is responsible for identifying builders that will
participate in the project. The Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc. (SBCCI) will
review the plans for the original home and identify the changes necessary to comply with the
proposed Florida Building Code. Applied Research Associate, Inc., (ARA) is responsible for









Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


capturing detailed costs of construction for both the original model and the model built under the
unified code. The modifications required by the unified Florida Building Code will be documented
photographically and with video tape as well as in terms of cost. The cost differential will be
recorded in terms of both labor and material to the extent possible from the builder's cost records. It
is anticipated that this effort will continue into 2001.


Mobile Home Tie-down Demonstration
The Florida Department of Community Affairs initiated a program in which mobile home tie-downs
were installed on selected mobile home parks in counties across the state. The legislation enabling
this program defined certain criteria for selecting the parks that would be included in the
demonstration. The Shimberg Center was selected to provide the Department with quantitative data
describing the manufactured housing inventory in Florida's 67 counties. These data were used to
select the counties that would be included in the demonstration. Once the Department selected the
counties, the Shimberg Center worked in cooperation with the Florida Survey Research Center to
contact the managers in every manufactured housing park in the county that met the basic qualifying
criteria. These telephone interviews collected the remaining information for qualifying the parks.
The results of the county-level manufactured housing inventory data and the subsequent park
manager interview data were assembled and submitted to the Department for program
implementation.


Building System Education & Research Park
The Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing was awarded an internal grant from the University of
Florida, Division of Sponsored Research, Opportunity 2000 Grant Program for the purpose of
preparing a business plan for establishing and operating a national Building Systems Education &
Research Park. The Park will be located on University of Florida land and will house a series of
small, identical research structures. Each of these structures will be built out of a different building
system; they will have the same orientation; and they will have the same window and doors. The
same heating/cooling system, properly sized, will be installed in each unit. The construction of each
research unit will be captured photographically to document the assembly process, sequence of
operations, equipment requirements, crew sizes and skills required, and any special tools, fasteners,
and finishes. Instrumentation will be installed to monitor temperature, humidity, and moisture as well
as energy consumption. Periodic visual inspections and photographic records will monitor
deterioration and structural changes of the structure. In addition to complete structures built of









Annual Report of the Shimberg Center for Affordable Housing


various alternative building systems, the Park will be used as a field testing site for advanced home
building technology in the hot, humid climate that characterizes Florida and other Gulf and Atlantic
coats states.


The Park will serve as a long-term research center for the durability and performance of the
alternative building systems as well as a short-term test facility for advanced technology. In addition,
the Park will serve as a large-scale classroom for on-site continuing education as well as being
accessible via Internet virtual visits. Financial projections indicate that the Park will be financially
self supporting by the fifth year of operation.


Community Outreach Partnership Center
The Shimberg Center has continued to operate the Community Outreach Partnership Center (COPC)
with partial support provided by the Jesse Ball duPont Fund. The COPC program has been effective
in identifying the needs of the community surrounding the university and in bringing appropriate
resources from the university to satisfy those needs. The goal for 2001 is to transfer the COPC
program to another central location within the University of Florida where it can draw resources more
effectively from various colleges.


Various Projects
The Shimberg Center also undertook three contracts with local governments to provide them with
demand-side estimates for the housing components of their Consolidated Planning process. It also
provided continuing assistance to the Governor's Affordable Housing Study Commission and
Department of Community Affairs staff. The Center also has several collaborative research projects
currently in progress: development of a methodology to assess local housing condition in
collaboration with Margaret Murray of Florida Atlantic University; development of a methodology to
estimate housing cost burden with George McCarthy of the University of North Carolina and the Ford
Foundation; refinement of the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment's housing needs methodology
with June Nogle of the UF-Bureau of Economics & Business Research; and refinement of the Needs
Assessment's small-city demand-side and supply-side estimates with Alfredo Navarro of the U.S.
Census Bureau.

SERVICE


The Shimberg Center is called upon by many organizations and communities to participate in
working groups, to speak on issues related to the delivery of affordable housing, or to serve as an
information resource and referral center. These requests for assistance span a range of topics such as
building technology, building regulations, land development, financing, consumer education, and
more. Responding appropriately to these requests is an important function of the Center in its efforts
to encourage and facilitate the production of affordable housing throughout Florida.


Organize Conferences
Conferences offer the opportunity for researchers and practicing professional to establish
communication and share ideas and experiences. The Shimberg Center therefore encourages
conferences, symposia, and workshops to the extent possible. During 1999-2000 the Shimberg
Center faculty were called upon to participate in various workshops and advisory groups:


The State ofFlorida's Housing, 2000. Southeast Builder's Conference, Orlando, FL. July
2000.
Barriers to New Home Building Technology. HUD Workshop on Alternative Building
Systems, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, August 2000.
Alternative Home Building Systems. Unity Conference of Florida Family and Consumer
Science Professionals. Tampa, Florida. October 2000.
Consolidated Plan Preparation. Department of Housing and Urban Development Training
Workshop. Jacksonville, FL. February, 2000.


Also during 1999 the Shimberg Center's faculty presented the results of research activities at various
conferences, workshops, and symposia in Florida and elsewhere:
Measuring Housing Condition. Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning. October,
2000.


The Florida housing database developed and maintained by the Shimberg Center was used to
perform housing market analyses for seven organizations affiliated with the Neighborhood
Reinvestment Corporation (NRC). Presentations of the results of these market assessments were
given before the Boards of five of these organizations.
