The homebuying landscape is changing rapidly. The transformation is being led
by millennials who are increasingly becoming a driving force in the market.
That means how homes are bought, sold and financed will never be the same.
Want a vivid example of what will come? Go to the nearest mall.
Chances are you can find evidence of the “retail apocalypse” near you. Maybe
it’s just some store vacancies, or a new housing complex where a shopping
center once stood. To some, it’s still pretty shocking.
In fact, more than 12,000 retail stores are expected to close just this year, as a
large number of corporate brands have gone bankrupt or have been purchased
in leveraged buyouts and downsized. Even giants of American commerce like
J.C. Penney, Kmart and Sears have been affected. > > >
