Metro Phoenix Land and Housing Forecast examines ‘refined opportunity’

While the industry has experienced sub-par housing activity over the past 11 months, the anticipated pace of growth going forward depends on a few factors, not the least of which is credit and qualification conditions, household formation, employment growth, the cost of new construction and outsiders’ perceptions of the local market. What are the expectations for growth in the nation’s economy, real estate capital markets, and residential real estate? Will these perceptions of a “refined opportunity” in real estate change how you operate your business now and in the future?

On Wednesday, December 10, 2014 the Land Advisors Organization will bring together a distinguished group of industry experts including Tim Sullivan (Meyers LLC), Nick Taratsas (DMB), Joel Shine (Woodside Homes), Mike Orr (Arizona State University, W. P. Carey School of Business), Don Garner (Alliance Bank of Arizona) and Matt Cody (Cachet Homes), to provide their considerable insight. Greg Vogel, CEO of Land Advisors Organization will moderate the panel.

Best advice received: “I’ve been lucky to have had some great mentors throughout my career who gave me a lot of great advice. But the one that comes to mind most is from my dad who said if your work is of great quality and quantity that deserves a promotion, you’ll never need to ask about it, it will come on its own.”
