“It is easy to see how millennials are embracing apartment living because of the convenience and flexibility to move for job opportunities. But at Steadfast, we believe that this is now a “GenerationAll” movement that includes Baby Boomers,” said Ella Neyland, president of the Company. “According to the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, in just 15 years, one in five people will be at least 65 years old. We believe that this older generation is increasingly becoming a renter generation by choice.”
