The Future Of San Luis Obispo Housing

The Future Of San Luis Obispo Housing

There will be a Central Coast housing Market Shift in the next coming 20 years. As baby boomers and their echo boomer children become homeowners, they will significantly effect the housing market. Echo Boomer children will make up approximately 65 million people born between 1981-1995. This will create a demographic challenge and opportunity.

The aging baby boomer population will swell the nation's senior population by 30 Million over the next 20 years. Typically people over the age of 65 are releasing more housing than they are absorbing, this demographic shift will help to increase the supply of housing. Currently we have a lack of affordable housing available for them to buy. With the economic downturn home construction was halted for over 7 years, creating a deficit in housing currently. With interest rates at record lows and banks wanting to lend money, buyers are competing for purchases on available homes on the market.

Generation Y, the Millennial Generation, Generation Next, Millennials, Net Generation or Echo Boomers. Whatever you want to call the world’s largest collection of twenty and thirty-somethings, they are coming to a town near you.
