New Legal & General Study on Millennials and Housing Looks at the Effects of Wage Stagnation on Home Ownership

Legal & General

36% of millennials find home ownership hard to afford where they currently live An additional 20% of millennials find home ownership extremely hard to afford Only half of recent millennial graduates managed to find a job matching their skills and education right after graduating – of these, 28% are still looking With broad economic concern about the Fed raising interest rates and the knock-on effect of increased borrowing costs, millennials’ attitudes around housing turn to the decades-long failure of wages to keep up with the cost of housing. Today, the third part of a broad new study conducted by Legal & General Group, U.S. Millennials and Home Ownership – A Distant Dream for Most, is released, zeroing in on how millennials’ income, and in particular the long-standing issue of wage stagnation, has contributed to the reality of housing unaffordability for millennials. This third segment of the data-rich study, Wage Stagnation Has Flipped the Housing Equation for Millennials, takes a deep dive into the effects of sluggish income growth versus the skyrocketing cost of housing on specific demographics within the 25- to 40-year-old U.S. millennial population. The long-term consequences are still unfolding, but according to the survey data, many millennials were living with their parents, and more than half of those surveyed found housing in their area to be cost prohibitive. Legal & General Group Chief Executive Nigel Wilson commented: “We’re seeing similarities between many parts of the U.S. and the U.K. in terms of the supply-demand imbalance, which further compounds the last few decades of median wage stagnation, something we are addressing at Legal & General. And while many millennials may have reasons beyond affordability to delay home ownership, the overwhelming majority of those who would like to become property owners continue to face significant challenges. It’s time to take action— and create solutions that will address the wage issue, as well as create a larger stock of affordable homes.” Study Co-Author and Legal & General Corporate Affairs Director John Godfrey notes: “With affordability and job opportunities at the top of millennials’ list of reasons why they would move, there clearly needs to be a rebalancing of priorities in order for this demographic to step onto the housing ladder. Median income for millennials in the U.S. has risen 24 percent since 2012, but the median cost of a home has risen by 86 percent, nearly four times that. This discrepancy is unsustainable.” Legal & General’s study looks not only at housing affordability, but also at geographic and demographic choices based on age and life stage, and at various drivers shaping these choices, including the duality of wage stagnation and the rising cost of housing. Future segments will look in depth at the intergenerational housing gap; home ownership on U.S. Millennials’ bucket list; student debt and the cost of healthcare; and where Millennials stand on retirement and other savings vehicles. # # # Media Contact: For more information on the 2021 U.S. Millennials and Home Ownership study, or to see a copy of Part 3 of the report, please contact: Meir Kahtan: mkahtan@rcn.com +1 917-864-0800 Meir Kahtan Public Relations, LLC Notes To Editors The information contained in this press release is intended solely for journalists and should not be relied upon by private investors or any other persons to make financial decisions.

South Florida Real Estate Trends for Fall 2021

Miami Luxury Waterfront Homes

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and work-from-home orders, buyers have been flocking to Miami and nearby areas in South Florida. And it's not just homeowners — companies including Microsoft, JetBlue Airways and Goldman Sachs have recently moved their headquarters to Florida. The city is also luring in Tech crowds thanks heavily to the Mayor, Francis Suarez, who has been targeting Silicon Valley. These trends have seen billionaire businesspeople make the move to Miami while the local economy has seen a boom as of late. Although it's hard to say if this particular trend will continue as COVID-19 carries on, it's not unbelievable to think that workers and businesses alike may continue to take up permanent residence in the area. When it comes to real estate, luxury homes and condos continue to be in high demand through the fall months and with listings moving fast and limited availability, average home prices have risen exceptionally in the last year. Miami recently surpassed L.A. as the most expensive housing market, coming in second only to New York City. Florida has seen a massive trend of transplants from big cities, including New York & California, where homeowners are used to paying top-dollar for real estate and higher taxes. As such, luxury properties have been flipping for record profits with some garnering nearly three times the original investment within a short span. Last month, a waterfront estate in Miami Beach was flipped for nearly a 50% gain in just 4 months. It sold for $19 million in May of 2021 and for $28.1 million in September. Flips for luxury single-family homes are becoming more common due to the low inventory of houses available for sale in South Florida. "This market is truly unique," says Samantha Joelle Elenson, a realtor with ONE Sotheby's International Realty for nearly a decade. Miami is thriving with its growing population. The local entertainment and culture scenes are expanding to accommodate the city's newest residents. "Miami is at the forefront for the place to be," Elenson says. The city saw a surge of restaurants open and supper clubs are gaining momentum. Last season, New Yorkers notoriously booked reservations in Miami's top restaurants months in advance so locals planning a night out would be wise to book ahead — something Miami locals may need to adjust to. "Our city is attracting various industries and people for different reasons," Samantha explains. "I was getting calls from out-of-state clients looking to escape to Miami for their freedom as they put it. There was also a tech wave and all of a sudden Silicon Valley was looking at Miami. After the Presidential election and proposed tax adjustments, we began seeing a migration of billion-dollar businesses relocate headquarters here along with their employees. The surge of new residents caught the attention of top hospitality groups like Major Food Group from New York, which opened the almost impossible to get into Carbone and ZZ's. The city is evolving quickly and as a result new opportunities are emerging." When it comes to real estate pricing, it's clear to see this trend continuing well into the fall of 2021 according to the data presented by Samantha's Brokerage, ONE Sotheby's International Realty, which is a leading luxury firm in South Florida. The Trends report can be viewed at https://www.onesothebysrealty.com/trends. It presents the only market report focused on Florida’s East Coast. Data is presented from a macro perspective down to a city level from Miami to Cocoa Beach. October is now well underway and although the market in neighborhoods throughout South Florida shows signs of a shift toward seasonal trends, buyer competition, particularly among domestic newcomers, is expected to continue. Pricing for single-family homes and condominiums should hold steady or see a slight decrease through the remainder of 2021. Thanks to buyer competition, in August 2021, more than 27% of homes were sold above the asking price. By comparison, February 2021 saw just 13% of the area's homes sold above asking. In August 2021, Miami-Dade County saw the highest average sales price. Single-family homes sold for an average of $995,538 — a 32% increase over the August 2020 average, while condos sold for an average of $556,225 — also a 32% increase over August 2020 numbers. "Buyers are struggling to get properties at asking with phenomenal terms," Samantha shares. The county saw more than 1,247 transactions close in August after an average of 41 days on the market. Homes in neighborhoods such as South Miami, Miami Beach, Surfside, Golden Beach and Bay Harbor had average sales prices exceeding $1 million with luxury homes Bay Harbor Islands boasting the highest average sales price at $8.625 million and homes in South Miami selling for an average of $1,184,063 — 26% more than in August 2020. Throughout Miami-Dade County, available listings have increased slightly over the past few months, with 3% more available listings in August than in July 2021, when available listings hit a record low. As the availability of homes for sale increases in South Miami and other neighborhoods throughout Miami-Dade, average sales prices are seeing a slight downward trend. However, the Miami housing market remains hot and competition among buyers is at an all-time high, meaning homes are selling fast and sellers are seeing full-price offers and bidding wars over properties. As fall progresses, it's expected that competition for luxury homes in South Miami and other sought-after communities in the area will continue. "Clients traveled this summer as countries reopened but the housing demand remained high even without their presence," she says. "I expect as the season approaches those who were unsure of an address in Miami, will return to the sunshine state where they happily found refuge last season with all of their friends." Overall, the South Florida real estate market continues to thrive in the fall of 2021. Competition is at all-time highs while average sale prices remain among the highest in the country.

It is now the industry standard used by 45,000+ CRE professionals for centralized operations, powerful digital marketing, and intelligent investing with real-time market data, providing solutions for every sector of the industry. Prior to VTS, CRE didn’t have a centralized platform for data and was fueled by disorganized spreadsheets and back-of-the-napkin deals. Now, the VTS platform captures the largest first-party data source in the industry, which delivers real-time insights that fuel faster, more informed decision making and connections throughout the deal and asset lifecycle. Over the course of 2021, the technology company made significant strides. In January 2021, VTS continued regularly distributing its key monthly VTS Office Demand Index (VODI). Following successful launches in New York City and Boston, in February 2021, VTS announced the launch of VTS Marketplace—free online office listings site—in Washington, D.C., purpose-built for tenant rep brokers. In February 2021, VTS also released its second annual 2021 VTS Global Office Landlord Report, which showcased new research on the strategies landlords are using to navigate COVID-19 and beyond. In March 2021, VTS announced its acquisition of Rise Buildings—the property operations and tenant experience technology company used by top landlords including Blackstone, Hines, and CIM Group—to continue its journey of modernizing the entire asset class experience for landlords and tenants. In July 2021, VTS announced that the now rebranded VTS Rise has become the most adopted tenant experience technology. As of July 1, 2021, +300 million square feet of 161 cities and over 500 buildings worldwide are managed on VTS Rise. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, VTS has hired +150 new employees, which emphasizes the impact of its software to enable the industry to not only survive, but thrive amid the pandemic.
