Good news! The real estate market in 2016 has been on the rise. This is a far-cry from eight years ago, when the market was completely tanking. We’ve been able to see a few trends from reports so far; people are moving and making their own way in the world, it seems. This is the year of DIY housing! Take a look and see if you can use this information to your advantage, as you try to sell on the market this year.
- Millennials are moving.
As our college attendees and graduates make their way through the world, they’re starting to move to the suburbs. Some are intending to start families, and others are just interested in separating from their parents; but a lot of them find comfort within the suburbs. A major change between this generation and the last is that they’re far more public transit oriented–so while they won’t be living in the city, they’ll be living close enough to access it without a car.
- More urban agriculture.
Since buying fresh produce can get expensive for those just starting out on their own, many choose to home-grow their food. We’re seeing a steady rise of crops being kept in personal gardens. This says something about accessibility. Those who don’t have the ability to visit a fresh produce stand are creating their own ways to obtain it. This could end up affecting the cost of living in certain areas, if it really takes off.
- Different ways to live.
The market crashing is still having lasting effects on housing, today. Rates of homeowners have dropped drastically, which is directly impacting how many homes are being rented. Actually, renting out living spaces is becoming more popular–not only can you rent apartments and townhomes, but certain homeowners are renting out more space for those who can’t afford more. On a related note, people are noticeably more satisfied with less space. Trends like microhousing show us that younger generations can work with tiny areas to make big impacts.
