Will the passing of the baby boom kill the housing market?

Check out this recent post over at Seeking Alpha predicting that the aging of the baby boom will kill the housing market. The gist is that boomers propelled the market upward by trading up to bigger houses, renovating and expanding, and acquiring second and third homes. But now the oldest boomers are hitting the downsizing age, so a big source of demand is starting to go away.

The post is based on an article in the Journal of the American Planning Association called “Aging Baby Boomers and the Generational Housing Bubble: Foresight and Mitigation of an Epic Transition.” You can see an abstract of the article, and get a chance to buy it for $28 if you’d like, by clicking here.
