The city growth without planning has caused many problems in the last decades. Issues related to housing are considered as these problems. Thus investigating housing situation seems to be essential. Because of its unique characteristics, housing has essential impact on the urban development. To this end the main purpose of this research is to investigate qualitative and quantitative indexes of housing in Guilan urban areas and to propose approaches for the improvement of the existing situation. This study is an analytic-descriptive research and 13 qualitative and quantitative indexes are used in investigating the housing situation of the urban areas of 16 towns in Guilan. For data analysis ANP model Topsis and Pearson correlation are used. The findings of this study indicate that the investigating indexes under investigation on housing in the towns of Guilan province face with many shortcomings. The urban areas of Roodbar town with 0.6606 points is ranked the first and Somesara town with 0.285599 points has the worst situation in Guilan in regard to housing.
