The 2010 NAHB Spring Construction Forecast Conference, previously an all-day, in-person event with a webcast option, will have a new two-hour webinar format and provide a macroeconomic outlook on the state of the nation’s economy and its impact on housing.
The webinar will be held from 2:00-4:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 18.
NAHB’s biannual construction forecast conference has provided in-depth housing and economic analysis for 40 years.
“It is my hope that this new format makes the construction forecast conference even more accessible and ensures that the event continues to provide the most relevant, useful housing market analysis,” said NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe, who will moderate the event and present NAHB’s housing forecast.
Panelists at the conference will discuss key questions, including:
- Recovery: Where is it going? How long will it take?
- What will be the effect of the housing inventory overhang on the market?
- What housing policy issues loom? What will the Fed do?
- Regional highlights — where are housing prospects strongest?
Panelists will include:
- Chris Varvares, president of Macroeconomic Advisers, who will present a macro overview and discuss finance, interest rates and how the Fed’s actions are affecting the recovery
- Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, who will present his outlook on growth and housing and discuss housing prices and the regional differences in recovery
- David Crowe, NAHB chief economist, who will present NAHB’s outlook on housing and the economy and examine the effects of low credit availability and under-value appraisals
Participants are encouraged to submit questions via the webinar’s onscreen application.
The fee is $29.95 for NAHB members and $49.95 for non-members.
