Media Webinar to Release ULI Real Estate Consensus Forecast Results

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 expert panel debates whether the possibility of a federal government shutdown will affect real estate market growth. Panelists will also address whether they expect the summer’s stock market dip to impact buying and lending. Despite the recent decision to not raise interest rates, the panel will provide their insight on whether interest rate fears have been allayed or if they anticipate a rate increase later this year.
