Free Aug. 17 Webinar to Discuss Land Development Opportunities
With banks hesitant to finance developments, equity investors seeking higher and quicker returns, municipalities hurting financially and developers still laboring under project agreements that were hastily entitled at the height of the market, NAHB’s Land Development Committee is hosting a free webinar on Aug. 17 beginning at 2:00 p.m. EDT that will explore opportunities in land development that are beginning to emerge in today’s uncertain environment.
“Repositioning Development Agreements and Project Financing to Address New Market Realities” will include an overview of the current status of the development landscape, financing issues, how large-scale developments are faring and new home design trends.
In addition, webinar panelists will discuss lot banking, fire sale land purchases, competing with foreclosures and renegotiating existing development agreements.
Panelists include Carter Froelich and Eric Brown, of DPFG Consultants, which focuses on helping land developers and builder clients navigate the development and construction process in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
William Sanderson, of Forest City Land Group based in Cleveland and a member of NAHB’s Land Development Committee, will serve as the moderator.
