The $100 Trillion Wealth Shift

Over the next 25 years, we will witness an unprecedented $100 trillion wealth transfer from baby boomers to their heirs. Notably, 44% of this wealth is tied up in real estate assets.

Key Stats:

  • $100 Trillion: Total expected wealth transfer.
  • 44%: Proportion in real estate assets.

Why It Matters: With nearly half of this wealth in real estate, the potential for growth, investment, and innovation in the sector is immense. This is the moment to reassess your strategies and position yourself at the forefront of this wealth migration.
