The forecast results from a recent survey of the country’s leading real estate economists and analysts will be discussed in an upcoming webinar. A panel of experts will discuss the near-term and longer-term projections for a wide variety of 27 key economic and real estate indicators, ranging from employment figures to transaction volume, housing starts, and commercial property sector performance. Panelists will also address whether they feel investors are more skeptical or optimistic compared to six months ago.

Hear as the panel debates whether rising consumer confidence, lower gas prices, and other signals of economic improvement are changing the outlook for certain property types. Gain insight to whether this season’s unexpectedly harsh winter weather slowed down commercial activity and if it will impact investment levels in the coming year.

The forecast findings, which will be released during an April 8 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.
