In this episode, Deborah Cloutier, CRE, interviews Scott Muldavin, CRE, on the current challenges the real estate industry is facing relating to the flow of people. Flow of People was listed as the #6 issue in the 2020-21 Top Ten Issues Affecting Real Estate®. Migration between and within countries has always been a critical driver of real estate and the economy. Today, the world’s economies face unprecedented challenges to mobility. Immigration has ground to a halt, initially driven by nationalistic policies in the U.S. and countries throughout the world, and more recently by the COVID-19 pandemic.
