Making predictions in what is still a somewhat volatile housing market can be tricky. That being said, we are going to give you what we believe will be the five biggest headlines for housing in 2014.

With the first baby boomer having turned 65 years old in 2011 and 8,000 of this cohort “celebrating” a 65th birthday daily, we are being bombarded regularly with messages about how this generation will impact virtually every aspect of life.
Even the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) didn't have a break-out session at this year’s NAR Conference in San Francisco devoted to dealing with the senior client, 55+ living options, or multi-generational housing needs. This despite their own reports indicating 1 in 4 home sellers as being over the age of 65 last year.
