“Are we better off or worse off than we were in 2006? Everyone so far at the table has said we are better off as an industry. I would strongly disagree. I think we are at a much worse place than we’ve been. I think we need to be intellectually honest with ourselves about what’s going on in the industry. We have some real issues. As a developer, one of the main concerns is the pricing. For years, I’ve been sitting across the table from syndicators, and they’ve been saying, ‘prices are going down, prices are going down.’ I’ve said, ’yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever. They’re not going down.’ This year, I really believe them. Prices are really going down. It’s a concern. It’s a challenge to make deals really work. I think we need to be honest with ourselves. The other issue is the AMI (area median income) issue. If we’re not honest with ourselves and we don’t go to Washington and we don’t’ get it fixed, it’s going to be a problem.”
