Explanation for the declining importance of rental housing in Kerala is to be found both in terms of supply as well as demand factors.  On the demand side, the factors leading to high demand for ownership housing are the inflationary expectations related to price of houses, uncertainty related to the future and period of tenure and the changing profile of the urban population. 
The declining level of affordability with incomes not keeping pace with increasing cost of houses would have dampened the demand somewhat.  Factors on the supply side however have made ownership housing more accessible through institutional support, even though it was not available to rental housing. 
The various ‘own your home’ schemes, with respect to Flats in Kochi offered greater availability of institutional finance for ownership housing and the emergence of unauthorized colonies in the city have made ownership housing accessible to a large section of population.  Since the setting up of the National Housing Bank, a larger amount of finance may become available.  As of now this finance is also geared to ownership housing. 
On other counts however the future does not seem to be as hopeful for continued availability and accessibilities of ownership housing to large sections of the population.  The heavy increase in land prices have made ownership housing inaccessible to a larger section of population with small and medium incomes.  The housing programme initiated by the Kerala State Housing Board has suffered a setback and it has not announced any new scheme since 1979.  The low availability of land in appropriate locations in the city area has led to fewer options for squatter settlements for the lower income groups.  There is going to be greater need for rental housing and the state government will have to have a clear and explicit policy to meet this increasing need.
