Roaring or groaning ’20s for real estate?
A global pandemic kicked off the 2020s: A decade still feeling the effects of the 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis and preceded by years of deep social, environmental and technological change in which inequality increased, extreme political views became more prevalent, climate action is taking center stage for the first time and digital technology ubiquitous.
We look at the parallels between the 2020s and the heady times of the 1920s – a decade of great upheaval. We consider what made the 1920s roar and explore the significant positive and negative trends that will shape real estate in the 2020s.
