Tailoring Housing to Demographic Change

Mar 12, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

As a predictive economic indicator, demographics have been overlooked and misunderstood by economists, central bankers and policymakers. This session looks at the impact of demographics on the housing market and the need to redesign the housing ecosystem to accommodate the needs of two main groups: Baby Boomers and Millennials.

The 92 million strong Millennial Generation is the largest ever, creating an unprecedented economic tailwind. As Millennials move into their prime spending years by 2020, their purchasing power will reshape the housing market. Join this session as speakers look at current needs and preferences of the two groups, and how the market might be redesigned to meet demographic demand.
