There is no shortage of affordable places, just a shortage of affordable places that have all the features some people want.

Not sure I follow this logic. Part of the problem is that it conflates basic services (decent schools, decent transit access, etc) as if they were amenities in a condo - like granite countertops or stainless steel appliances.

Those places are cheaper, but that doesn't make them cheap. Those negatives all impose costs. However, I'm not sure why people keep putting those social and economic negative qualities out there as evidence that we don't really have an issue with housing supply.
