Media Webinar to Release ULI-EY Real Estate Consensus Forecast Results

Are improvements in housing inventories and builder sentiment expected as the year goes on and the weather improves? When will employment growth and demographics start to favor housing activity? Is mortgage availability expected to worsen or improve over the next few years? How will the current economic and political environment affect housing and other property types? Industry economists will address these questions along with whether they feel investors are more skeptical or optimistic compared to six months ago.

Get the latest predictions from the latest Urban Land Institute (ULI) Real Estate Consensus Forecast, a semi-annual report sponsored by EY, which is based on a survey of 39 of the nation’s leading real estate economists and analysts. The forecast findings, which will be released during an April 1 webinar, provides both near-term and longer-term forecasts for broad economic indicators, real estate capital markets, property investment returns for four property types, vacancy rates and rents for five property types, as well as housing starts and prices.
