As real estate sales and developments in King and Snohomish counties go, so goes Pierce? Maybe.
Either way, industry professionals in the South Sound may be interested in an event scheduled for early autumn in Bellevue as the Master Builders Association of King & Snohomish Counties presents the 2014 Housing Summit focusing on the decreasing volume of buildable land in the Puget Sound area.
The event will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 23 from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Meydenbauer Convention Center, 11100 NE 6th St.
Presented in partnership with Puget Sound Energy, the morning will feature “a line-up of top housing and real estate professionals addressing this growing challenge and its economic impacts region-wide,” according to an MBA release Wednesday.
Admission to the event is free. Early reservations are suggested and can be made online at www.MasterBuildersInfo.com or by calling 425-451-7920.
David Crowe, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the National Association of Home Builders, will join experts sharing trends and forecasts. Crowe will be joined by Todd Britsch, president of New Home Trends, and Nancy Bainbridge Rogers, land use attorney at Cairncross & Hempelmann.
“The Summit addresses a tough reality we face in our region. If housing capacity fails to meet our growing needs, we risk experiencing escalating home prices to unsustainable levels, threatening our economy and quality of life,” stated MBA Executive Director Shannon Affholter in the release.
