Capital Markets

The recent Emerging Trends report from ULI ranked Houston among the magnets for capital. What asset classes are in vogue in 2020, and how are deals being financed?

Multifamily

The Houston apartment sector is on the rise again as the city's economy diversifies and adds jobs, development moderates and investors gravitate to the Bayou City. Hear from the experts on where market fundamentals are headed, trends in development and why Houston was recently rated the nation's top "buy" market for multifamily assets.

3:10pm - 3:55pm:

Industry Leaders

Every new year brings new predictions. Who will win this year’s presidential race? Will the market be bullish or bearish? How will the Fed's rate cuts impact the commercial real estate market? Developers, owners and investors are now more than ever, focused on tenant experiences, climate change and city rejuvenation. Hear what our industry leaders have to say, particularly what's ahead for real estate in 2020.
