It’s an electric atmosphere, at the Expo, and unofficially I can report it looks like a bit of an attendance hike over last year’s Expo from what I can tell just walking the corridors. REALTORS® from all over the country are meeting and greeting, networking and sharing war stories like always, but this time around, there’s a palpable feeling of market renewal and recovery. Either that, or the Florida sunshine has already done its magic en masse.
Today’s commercial real estate program offerings from NAR Commerical have already ranged from a deep dive into making the transition into commercial practice from residential practice to a rundown of the economy and profile of this year’s market for agricultural land. Afternoon sessions include Economic Issues & Commercial Real Estate Business Trends Forum with NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, who, sunshine or no, will certainly be able to pick apart the numbers for the year and the trends for the coming year.
