At the upcoming Florida Real Estate Trends summit, participants will have the unique opportunity to gain insights from Florida Realtors® Chief Economist Dr. Brad O'Connor and Dr. Sean Snaith, the director of the University of Central Florida's Institute for Economic Forecasting, who will present their 2024 real estate trends and projections for Florida's economy and offer invaluable perspectives on the state's housing market.
Florida's economy is heavily driven by the real estate industry, and having insight into potential market trends is crucial for policymakers, residents, and Realtors® to make informed decisions for the future.
One of the standout events at the Florida Realtors 2024 Mid-Winter Business Meetings is the Real Estate Trends summit, scheduled on January 19 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the prestigious Hyatt Regency Orlando. The summit's agenda boasts a distinguished panel of experts who will delve into topics such as Florida's population growth, migration patterns, and the impact of rising housing costs on workers, businesses, and retirees.
The panel comprises Jeff Johnson, AARP Florida's state director; Jimmy Heckman, the chief economist and labor market information director at the Florida Department of Commerce; Heather Kasten, the president and CEO of the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce; and Jennifer Warner, a Florida Realtors economist and director of economic development.
