How to Survive the Phoenix-area Housing Market

The Arizona Republic & W. P. Carey School to Host Event

The new year brings new challenges for those who want to buy or sell their homes in the Phoenix area. Do you know what to expect? The Arizona Republic and the ASU Real Estate Council at the W. P. Carey School of Business are hosting an event to help you find out what’s happening out there.

“Phoenix Housing Market Explained II” will be held Saturday, Jan. 25 at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus. The event will be similar to one held last spring, and it will feature an overview of the local housing market, including trends like employment and population growth, that can affect the housing industry. The experts will also answer submitted questions from the audience.

The speakers – all experts frequently quoted in the media -- will be:

  • Catherine Reagor, senior real estate reporter for The Arizona Republic
  • Mike Orr, director of the Center for Real Estate Theory and Practice at the W. P. Carey School of Business
  • Mark Stapp, director of the Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program at the W. P. Carey School of Business

“This is a chance for those thinking about buying or selling homes in the Phoenix area to hear about current price trends and other developments that may affect them,” explains Reagor.

The event will be held in the Business Administration C-Wing Building, or BAC, at 400 E. Lemon St. at ASU in Tempe. Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., followed by the presentations and discussion from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The cost is $25 per person, with a $10-off discount available for subscribers to The Arizona Republic and ASU students, employees and alums.

Parking is available just across the street at the intersection of Apache Boulevard and Normal Avenue. Signage will direct participants from the garage to room BAC 116 on the first floor of the BAC building.

Space is limited, and you can register at tickets.azcentral.com. More information about the event can be found at www.money.azcentral.com, www.wpcarey.asu.edu, or by calling (602) 444-4931.
