Vancouver has an empty homes tax, which imposes a 1% tax of the property’s assessed value on housing that is empty or underused. Revenue from this tax will be reinvested to affordable housing. In Cambridge, this revenue could be put towards credit for a Somerville-like 100 Home program, or purchase of land for Community Land Trusts.
