The futurist’s future home is coming sooner than you think: according to a new report from Bloomberg, “futurists” are planning to purchase more than 1,000 houses in the coming years.
That’s up from just a few dozen homes a few years ago, and according to the report, “The Future House,” the number of such homes will “increase to more than 7,000 homes by 2022.”
In a statement, Bloomberg said the company’s research “found that the futurists are on track to purchase a total of 7,700 new homes over the next five years.”
It’s hard to overstate how important these new homes will be for our future, but Bloomberg points out that the total number of homes purchased so far is far lower than the total value of homes sold in the first half of 2021.
For example, in the three months through June 30, there were 1,739,073 homes sold.
That number dropped to 1,500 homes in June and then dipped to 749 homes in July.
That would suggest that more people are considering a home purchase in the near future.
Of course, Bloomberg also reported that the number who are considering purchasing a home is much lower than previous years.
During the same time period, there was a 25 percent drop in the number selling a home, which Bloomberg explained as “the trend toward people less likely to buy a home.”
