  2021: A record year in RE sales  

When 2021 is over, it will have seen the highest level of home sales in 15 years. So said National Association of REALTORS® Chief Economist Dr. Lawrence Yun, speaking at the Residential Economic Issues and Trends Forum earlier this month during the 2021 REALTORS® Conference & Expo.

Yun expects the year to end with a 15% national increase in median home prices. Next year will be robust as well, albeit flat, with prices up about 2.8% as rents continue to rise. Yun says builder activity is "bouncing back" and having its best year in more than a decade as well, though nowhere near where it was in 2005.

"The housing market has been the one bright spot during the pandemic for two major reasons," Yun said. First, low interest rates, and second, COVID-19 itself. Click here to read the full article.

  Intergenerational housing bringing vulnerable youth, seniors together  

Nevada Independent article illustrates how trend is spreading to Silver State

A new Reno housing complex will pair five young women who transitioned out of foster care with five senior citizens in need of affordable housing ... Similar models have been built for an often-overlooked group: Youth who have transitioned out of foster care and are living on their own, usually without financial and emotional support. 

Such housing models nationwide have dual aims: soothing the loneliness of often-isolated seniors and youth who find themselves alone in the world, with limited income. They also solve deeper social problems that arise when these needs are not met - people both old and young ending up on the streets, or hospitalized, suffering both physically and emotionally. The Reno facility, set to break ground next month, is one of the latest examples. Dubbed the Gen Den, the 10-unit building will house residents who will pay $500 a month for a one-bedroom apartment. The project aims to be open in about a year. Click here to continue reading the NV Indy article.
