AFIRE Podcast #16: The New Generation of Single-Family Rentals

(Featuring Anthony Cazazian, Managing Director, Head of US Residential Real Estate, Man Global Private Markets)

The demographic transition from baby boomers to millennials spells increased demand for single-family rentals in the coming decades. According to Man GPM, supply needs to keep up.

“OK, boomer.”

The somewhat condescending term applied by Millennials to those born in the decades after World War II has morphed into a meme that encapsulates the gulf in priorities between these two very different generations.

“OK, boomer” takes on a slightly different meaning when used in the context of the single-family rental (SFR) market, though. US population growth and demographics trends could indicate increasing SFR demand over the coming decades, and supply may well fail to keep up. Indeed, when it comes to SFR, a new, different boomer generation—millennials who are just now entering the key home-building phase of their lives—is good news for the sector.

In this episode, Anthony Cazazian, Managing Director and Head of US Residential Real Estate for Man Global Private Markets (Man GPM), talks about the future of residential markets and changing demographics.

This podcast is based on the article “OK, Boomer” from Summit Journal (Summer 2020). Read the full article here.
