Real Estate has always been a great investing strategy. Many people built their wealth by investing in the income producing properties. And each time period allows us to take the advantage of unique opportunities. Here are the trends in United States we all can capitalize on:

  • Millennials no longer want to own houses. Well, living in your own house was always an American dream. But that no longer applies to anyone – millennials who were just kids during the crash of 2008 saw the value of the houses their parents owned going down substantially. And in some cases those families owed more money to the bank comparing to the property market value. So they ask themselves now – why would I risk and buy the house while I just can rent and not worry? And many well established people decide to simply rent; they are AAA tenants and pay top dollars for good properties in great locations;
  • Downtown redevelopments. In many US cities the downtown is a place to work but not a place to live. People commute to work in the morning and return home in the evening. And that commute is becoming longer and longer as the cities continue to expand. Some people would love to stay in downtown or at least close to it and enjoy their life instead of sitting in that terrible traffic. Fortunately, some cities finally understood that and started a trend of rebuilding the areas around the downtown core. In those cities you can see many new construction projects, they are called “in-fills”. The developers buy land with some old house and build several new houses or an apartment complex instead. And those millennials are just happy to rent – the nightlife is only steps away;
  •  Work from home. The advance in technology has a huge impact on the workforce. Some jobs no longer required, some jobs no longer require commuting to the office. That saves people not only time but also money. And some of them need to adjust – yes, driving to work every morning is no longer a requirement but what about the office in the house? Or what about that second family car people no longer use – can it be sold and the monthly payment allocated to a larger mortgage that allows buying the bigger house? Or how about I now can work from the cottage all day long – maybe it is a time to finally purchase one?;
  • Migration of workers to less expensive / tax friendly states. Work from home opens new doors not only to employees but also to their employers – they can move some jobs to less expensive or tax friendly states. For example, a company in California can move some secondary positions to Texas or Florida where there is no state income tax. So, technically, if in an employee is making $100,000 annually gross in California but only $85,000 annually gross in Texas – the net income still would me more or less the same due to lower taxes. So the company pays less and salaries and does not need to rent that extremely expensive office space. And every person that comes to a new place normally creates 2-4 local jobs;
  • Baby boomers move South. Well, as of 2018 we have approximately 25 millions of baby boomers but that amount is expected to grow to 65 millions in only 10 years and to 75 millions by year 2030. And what some of those baby boomers will do? They will likely sell their property (or downsize) and buy a place for themselves in a warm market. That could be a permanent new residence or just a secondary place to escape the cold winter; no matter the reason – the baby boomers will purchase real estate in those sunny states.
