What ought to be done about soaring home prices?

Tbh I don’t really see the government doing too much to really impact this issue except for building affordable housing projects. But these projects tend to be concentrated in very impoverished areas ridden with crime or these areas become impoverished and dangerous because everyone with any money just gets up and leaves. Housing in relatively safe areas is still out of reach even for people who graduated college and have well paying professional jobs. I can only imagine that it’s even worse for people with below average incomes to boot.

So is there a solution? Is there anything that the government can do to lower the average price of housing without making the housing market crash all together?
