There is an opportunity to create more equitable communities through investing in people and places that may have been traditionally overlooked and underserved according to the Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2023.

These initiatives address accessible transportation, broadband internet access, environmental remediation, and reconnecting black neighborhoods and other communities of color that were previously displaced by decades-old urban renewal programs.
These kinds of programs are significant for increasing remote employment opportunities, enabling access to jobs, advancing economic opportunities, boosting social interactions, and rebuilding once-thriving communities. The more forward-thinking, and flexible, regions that execute successful infrastructure strategies will better succeed and generate more favorable financial outcomes for municipalities, improve the economy more broadly, and increase social outcomes.
