BRINGING TOGETHER INDUSTRY THOUGHT LEADERS TO SOLVE THE HOUSING INVENTORY SHORTAGE FROM THE GROUND UP.
After the successful launch of the Construction Lending Summit in Denver, Colorado, the premier mortgage industry event is heading to the booming Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex!
DFW is the national leader in numeric population growth adding nearly 400 new residents daily. The rapid growth has been followed by a 50% increase in home prices between 2011 and 2016. Escalating land prices, labor and material cost increases has created a serious shortage of affordable housing starts.
With low inventory and increase in home prices, the Dallas region is ripe with opportunity! However, the regional issues facing DFW are only a snapshot of a larger national housing crisis. This is the opportune time for lenders to be proactive in creating more inventory.
This is a not to be missed event for lenders, local contractors and realtors participating in the residential construction space. Here are five reasons you need to attend this premier construction lending event:
1. LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS
In this afternoon seminar and networking event, you will learn directly from the thought leaders in construction lending. Delivering presentations include experts from Metrostudy, Fannie Mae, USDA, MRG, First Bank, and AFR. See the full list of speakers.
