Filmed May 3, 2017, at the ULI Spring Meeting in Seattle.
The semiannual ULI Real Estate Consensus Forecast, a survey of leading industry experts, was just released. How is the new administration affecting the forecasts? How have they changed from six months ago? Where do the experts agree or disagree? Why? Where will the real estate industry be at the end of 2017? Will 2017 be a turning point for the industry—or will it be 2018? What’s the current thinking regarding the impact on real estate of the shifting interest-rate environment, global capital, and growth outside the major markets?
Hear a lively debate between participating survey experts as they explain or defend their views. Ask questions or challenge the consensus about what lies ahead for the real estate industry in 2017 and beyond.
