A recent Miami Herald article, written by Ricardo Mor, pointed out that there are 83.1 million Millennials and a whopping 30 percent of them live at home with their families. This is an incredible statistic, especially for investors considering investing in multifamily real estate.
These 18-to-34-year-olds are historically our apartment dwellers, taking their first steps toward independence. Instead of moving into their first home post college graduation, they are still living at home.
Do the math: that’s almost 25 million young people – potential apartment renters who haven’t entered the rental market yet. The pent-up demand is huge and increasing. New construction cannot keep up, but even then, it is far too expensive for the entry level worker or new college grad.
That’s exactly why Lloyd Jones Capital is acquiring existing apartment complexes and re-branding and improving them in order to accommodate this exploding demographic that represents one-quarter of our nation’s population.
Paying attention to these real estate trends will move you to diversify your portfolio investment with multifamily real estate. Our investment strategy of finding, purchasing and remodeling C Class rentals is a great way to secure modern apartments for millennials while still creating a significant return for our investors.
