Forget hovercars, and futuristic skyscrapers, have you ever wondered what buying a house will look like in the future? Invisible Homes takes a look further into what the future holds for buying a house in 2050.

Will buying property still be a good investment?

Throughout history, buying and selling property has proven to be a fail-safe and reliable investment that offers inflation-protected returns; this is especially true for the London property market which tends to be more buoyant compared to outside the capital. Marshall King, CEO of Property Partner states that this trend can be applied to the future, as people will continue to invest in buying homes as a means for long term wealth protection.

Property will continue to be a popular investment in the future.

How will homes look like in 2050?

The revamped concept of “co-living” will take off by 2050. Space10, an Ikea think tank, believes that it has the potential to “to not just overhaul the real estate world but also consumer patterns that have been in place for decades.” This movement is powered by young professionals who blur the lines between home, work and play, will be able to enjoy a flexible living space with bars and movies rooms to gyms and hot tubs. With shorter, flexible leases, these complexes aim to “minimise the friction” that often is associated with city flat-sharing. Although the likes of The Collective already exist in London for £1,000 a month, by 2050 they will be more affordable and commonplace.
