Developed will the help of real estate developers, investors, lenders, servicers and builders, the Urban Land Institute's "Emerging Trends in Real Estate" forecast provides a peek at the investment and demographic trends that will drive the market in the near future. Among their predictions:

  • Job growth will determine the pace of the real estate recovery
  • "Multi-family apartment building will wane"
  • Suburban development will be centered around "more urban-minded projects"
