The National Association of Realtors reports:
Housing demand over the next decade will be significantly higher than it is today, predicts Lawrence Yun, the chief economist of the National Association of REALTORS®, in his latest column at Forbes.com. Rising populations and a growth in the job market likely will release a pent-up demand in housing over the next 10 years, he says.

About 325 million people currently live in the U.S., and population projections forecast a 27 million increase to 352 million in 10 years. (full article available here).
