Navigating the Silver Tsunami: What the Baby Boomer Housing Shift Means for Real Estate

The so-called "silver tsunami" – the anticipated surge of housing supply resulting from baby boomers downsizing or passing away – is once again making waves, and this time, financial analyst Meredith Whitney predicts it might hit this year.
