2024 Kickoff--  A History of Turning Market Problems into Success!

Prob·lems - Opportunities in Disguise

Kickstart the new year by joining us for a special panel of seasoned real estate professionals! These real estate investors will share first hand accounts of their experiences on the front lines of the real estate industry throughout the last 30+ years of both "good and bad" market conditions.

While many grew discouraged, lost hope, stopped trying and quit when conditions got tough, this group navigated, survived, and overcame the many challenges different markets throughout the years offered them. Our panel is excited to walk you through some of the crises that, at the time, everyone was very worried about and reveal how real estate investors and professionals like themselves navigated these tough times, thrived, and came out stronger than before!

To name a few……

·         1979 - Oil Crisis

·         1981 - Interest rates as high a 21.5%

·         1987 - Black Monday Stock Crash

·         1990 - S & L Crisis 1990-1991 (RTC, Resolution Trust Company)

·         1990’s – Hurricanes

·         2000 – Y2K

·         2001 - Dot-com Crash

·         2007 - The Great Recession

·         2020 - Covid 2020

Our panel will discuss the markets listed above and also address the unique challenges of today's market:

1.      Low inventory

2.      Rising Interest Rates

3.      Inflation
