"MarketWatch asked housing, real-estate and transportation experts to help illustrate those coming shifts. None had a crystal ball, but they’ve all thought extensively about the effects automated vehicles will have on housing.

Many Americans will live in densely packed cities, but most of us will still head for the suburbs in search of backyards, an extra bedroom, and fresh air. We’ll use commuting time for work: No one predicts the “death of distance” — the idea that we’d rarely leave our homes again — that accompanied the internet’s early rise.
