Factors relating to the lack of affordable housing in the state of Georgia are explored through the attendance of local Homebuilder Association meetings across the state of Georgia. Local Homebuilder Association members’ rankings were compiled from a survey to aggregate the builders’ opinions about the state’s zoning regulations, building codes, and impact fees. The results showed there was no association between builder type and the perceived presence of an affordable housing barrier in the community. This was seen through the bivariate analysis. With the lack of affordable land zoning regulation the only statistically significant variable was if the association member purchased lots for home construction seen through the binomial logit regression. The findings show that there are variables that affect affordable housing in the state of Georgia that have not been examined to this point through research.
