THINK US - Investing in the MiMi's

Our latest US research highlights the demand for apartments is set to continue in the next decade, due to demographic trends, most notably from the millennial cohort, and affordability concerns across middle income households.

The report looks at eight 'flight to suburb' metros which may lose higher income older millennials as they marry and have children. However, this will also create an opportunity in those metros for potential dislocation in the luxury and Class A apartment market. We believe younger millennials will continue to rent but migrate to cities with the strongest job prospects at a lower cost of living. 

We identified affordability as the key differentiator, as middle income households comprise of 20 percent and 35 percent of each millennial age cohort. Middle income households represent a stable long-term source of demand for apartments as they tend to rent out of necessity and not necessarily by choice.
