New York, NY (March 11, 2010)—What’s in store for New York City’s residential real estate market? Has the market reached the bottom yet? How is the credit crunch affecting the residential market? These questions and more will be answered by New York’s real estate experts at a breakfast forum titled, “The Future of Residential Real Estate in NYC,” presented by the Center for Real Estate Studies at New York Law School on Wednesday, March 17, at 8:15 a.m. at the Law School, located at 185 West Broadway.
“The current economic climate has significantly affected the residential real estate market, creating both new opportunities and demand for greater sophistication in today’s real estate transactions,” Professor Andrew R. Berman, Director of the Center for Real Estate Studies, said. “The Center is proud to present this panel of industry leaders who will share their insights on the residential real estate market. In doing so, they’ll address topics ranging from an analysis of economic conditions, trends in property valuation, the underlying causes of the current oversupply and anemic demand, and negotiation strategies to get the deal done.”
