Who Will Win and Lose in the City Where Amazon Puts Its Headquarters

The take of Lawrence Yun, chief economist, National Association of Realtors, from his talk at the Residential Real Estate Economic Issues and Trends Forum at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Chicago, IL, on November 3, 2017.



  1. Atlanta!

    Unless they are brain dead! They should be making 5 to 10 year projections. Disposable income in the South east will keep going up with all the North Eastern people heading to Florida and Tennessee.

  2. I think Raleigh-Durham makes the wisest choice. They have a huge base of technical people there already and there are tons of beautiful acres to pave for homes, apartments, and roads. Amazon would also have their pick of the gentrification-ready Durham, the cool-hipsterish Raleigh, or the down-to-business Cary in-between. The RDU airport is constantly being expanded as well.

  3. I too think Raleigh - Durham is best choice. It is already growing as a great IT hub. Beautiful location , relatively inexpensive. Wonderful place.
