2017 Building Trends - Don't Forget the Gen Xer
Original Comment:


The past decade has seen transformative technological advancements in society, powered by shifts in connectivity. At the same time, home building business and operations are stuck somewhere in yesteryear. As millennials begin to enter the market as home buyers, the “must-haves” they demand may finally spark innovation. There’s pressure on builders to build better, faster, smarter, and more efficiently. See story here.



But don't forget the Gen X generation. Members of Gen X are increasingly the typical buyers of newly built single-family homes. For homes built from 2010 to 2015, approximately four out of 10 were purchased by a member of Generation X. And this share will rise in the coming years. See story here.
