Bouwinvest has published the North American Living Outlook 2024-2026. In this first edition, we provide a comprehensive overview of the dynamics within the North American housing markets through 2026.

Key topics include:

  • Transparency and liquidity of the U.S. housing market: The United States has the most transparent and liquid housing market in the world. We expect the share of residential properties in institutional portfolios to grow significantly.
  • Demographic growth in Canada: Canada shows the strongest demographic growth among the G7 countries. There is a significant mismatch between supply and demand for rental housing. Historical returns have shown a stable trend. Investments in this country therefore contribute to portfolio diversification potential.
  • Growth of alternative residential segments: Bouwinvest believes in strong growth in alternative residential segments, such as single-family rentals (particularly in the so-called Sun Belt), student housing (especially in Canada), and senior housing.
  • Market recovery: We believe that the bottom has been reached in terms of value decline and that investor interest and transaction volumes will increase in the second half of 2024 and beyond.
