The 2020 CCIM Commercial Real Estate Forecast Competition scheduled for Thursday, February 20, provides one of the best opportunities to learn about the many factors affecting Houston’s complex real estate marketplace.

The annual CCIM Forecast has become one of Houston’s best attended events for commercial real estate professionals. Attendees will hear seasoned industry leaders discuss market conditions as well as earn four (4) hours of CE credit.

Future market trends are predicted with a debate-style competition by local experts in the office, medical, retail, industrial, land, and multi-family markets. In addition to brokers discussing the various property types, the economic picture for the region and state will be presented by Dr. Mark Dotzour, Ph.D. in a keynote address at 8 a.m.

Although the CCIM Forecast event is billed as a competition, the event is more about a shared perspective. The presenters listed in the table below typically agree on most substantive points. But having two presenters approach the same topic from different perspectives provides additional insight into a large, complex set of markets. One presenter may be more optimistic and the other perhaps more pessimistic, but the format creates a conversation that describes the markets in more detail than a matrix of market metrics and prognostications.

Make plans now to attend the CCIM Forecast Competition and gain the knowledge to make better business decisions in the Houston and Texas Gulf Coast commercial real estate marketplace.
