Building the Walls – Homeownership, Demographics, and the Outlook for California’s RE Business

California’s housing affordability crisis is at an all-time high. The erosion of homeownership, becoming a majority renter state, out-migration, lack of property inventory, and multiple demographics being pushed out of housing opportunities are all major factors that are changing the California housing marketplace. What does this mean for the future of the real estate industry? C.A.R. CEO Joel Singer will address how these issues are impacting the industry, the penalties of selling, trading, and moving out of state, government policies that will affect the marketplace, and where California is headed next..

Tickets are $60 if you purchase before May 2.
