C.A.R. will present live stream coverage of "The Real Estate Summit: Partnering for Change in California" on Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. PST.
C.A.R. and leading real estate research centers at California’s top universities will convene to draw on the ideas, thoughts, and resources of top real estate leaders and economists to discuss four key subjects:
• Solutions for a Recovering Market: Housing Affordability and Financing Homeownership: With home prices rising faster than both incomes and rent, the panel will evaluate how interest rates, access to capital, and price increases all present significant challenges to homeownership.
• The Impact of Foreign Investment on California’s Economy: As foreign investors spend billions on California real estate, this discussion analyzes their impact on the overall housing market and state’s economy.
• Housing in the 21st Century: Changing Demographics and Consumer Trends: As shifting demographics reshape how and where people live, panelists explore the impact of 21st century communities.
• State of the State: Assessing the Effects of California’s Infrastructure Challenges: Panelists examine California’s population growth and deteriorating infrastructure — notably its insufficient transportation corridors and water supply – and the significant challenges they pose to future housing markets.
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro is the keynote luncheon speaker. Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, was sworn in as HUD’s 16th secretary on July 28, 2014. As secretary, he has focused on ensuring that HUD is a transparent, efficient, and effective champion for the people it serves.
