If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed... Young fool.... Only now, at the end, do you understand. Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side.... You have paid the price for your lack of vision...
If you want to increase supply and bring down housing prices then the government needs to build the houses themselves - a national emergency building programme through a state owned building service.
No, it needs to remove the many costs it layers on to the cost of producing housing (now estimated to be almost one third of the price of a new house). That is what "increasing supply" actually means in economics.
But Socialists don't like that. They hate the idea of producing goods at the price people can afford - because they lose control over other people's choices and lives.
