WASHINGTON, DC—Working women, affluent immigrants and both younger and older adults will drive demographic trends through 2025, the Urban Land Institute says in a new report. Titled Demographic Strategies for Real Estate, the report sees positive long-term implications for the multifamily sector, among other findings.

“Government policies, economic cycles, new technologies, and shifts in social acceptability have driven massive shifts in real estate demand over the decades,” says John Burns, CEO of John Burns Real Estate Consulting, which prepared the report for ULI’s Terwilliger Center for Housing. Real estate executives who “identify the trends early and adapt always win,” he adds.
