In its Emerging Trends in Real Estate report for 2017, the Urban Land Institute points to a “de-emphasis on ownership reflected in a soaring demand for rental units,” with the Millennial and Boomer/Empty Nester cohorts leading the way. According to the study, “more than half of the 12.5 million net new households created in the next decade will rent, including those who have never owned and those making the switch from owning to renting as they age.” What is driving the Millennials and Boomer/Empty Nesters into the high-end luxury apartment rental market? With roughly 10,000 exiting the workforce each day between now and the end of the next decade, Baby Boomers are retiring at the highest rate in history. They are shedding their homes and renting by choice—“Altering the American Dream,” says the Chicago Tribune, explaining, “(Boomers) are aspiring to live like urban Millennials—in rental buildings full of amenities and free of lawn mowing, shoveling, mortgages and property taxes.” Newer to the housing market are Millennials, the 18- to 34-year-olds who have surpassed Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest living generation. While, in the 1980s and 90s, this segment considered rental a short-term option before purchasing a house, today’s Millennials (more)

According to McKinsey business consultants, 70 percent of buying experiences are based on how a client feels they are being treated. Valuing what your clients need from you is the number one driver to successfully building repeat business. Only factoring in the metrics of client loyalty from your company’s side of the equation is like taking a snapshot of what is directly in front of you. Instead, identifying “what does my client need” will provide a panoramic view that opens the door to ongoing win-win business relationships. Longtime clients return expecting the same positive experience with every project. They benefit from working with companies with proven track records—companies who know and understand them and can jump right in. There is peace of mind when using a repeat source for any product or service. Searching out, vetting, and checking recommendations for new sources takes time and money. And, even the most comprehensive research can yield an incompatible relationship when selecting a new provider. There is no price that can be associated with “repeat business”… often it’s a win-win for all involved. How do you deliver successful relationship-driven execution of clients’ facilities? ⇒ Listen—collaborate, don’t dictate: To design and deliver on target with (more)
