RHAWA is proud to present the 2018 Economic Forecast Summit on February 21st. We are very excited to hear from our keynote speaker, Windermere’s Chief Economist Matthew Gardner! Washington’s rental market is unique among others in the country, and gaining insight to those factors from a seasoned expert is a unique opportunity. Whether you’re wanting to find out more about how to set your rental rates, when to buy or sell property, or what changes you can expect over the next several years; we’ve got you covered.
Matthew will be looking at the statewide economic picture and providing you with a thorough breakdown of each piece that make up the whole. By examining each facet of what contributes to the overall state of the housing market you will learn what to look for and what to avoid when considering major financial decisions. As Windermere’s chief economist, Matthew focuses on using his analysis of the economic landscape to advise on best practices and how to implement them for long term financial security. What may be true for Seattle is not necessarily true for Bellingham or Spokane, and we want to be sure that no matter where your property lies you receive valuable information to guide your choices.
Being aware of how new construction, employment opportunities, and housing density in your area will play into your financial investments could make all the difference when confronted with tough business choices. In order to make the best decisions, you need the best information. Fortunately, Matthew is able to provide just that! In his role as Chief Economist, Matthew issues monthly regional market updates and is constantly engaged in researching what is on the horizon for the rental industry. As a veteran speaker, he is adept at breaking down all of this information in an easy to grasp manner that will allow you to come away from the event with a wealth of actionable knowledge to help your rental business thrive.
This year’s Economic Forecast Summit will be held at the Seattle Tennis Club, and will feature a full breakfast and plenty of coffee to perk you up and get you ready before the program. This event is your best chance to get the information you need to make sure you are making the right financial moves during 2018 and beyond.
