The Southern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute holds a great conference each year covering a variety of hot-topic issues.  The 2013 Conference will be held this Thursday, September 12, 2013, and my partner Rick Rayl and I will be presenting on the future of redevelopment in California.  So, if you’re interested in what’s played out over the last year for redevelopment agencies, what lawsuits have been filed, what projects are moving forward, and what the future holds for all the property that is now owned by the successor agencies, come join us.  

The rest of the Conference is worth highlighting as well.  The program is packed with speakers, panel discussions and tours that will highlight emerging issues in valuation, new trends in real estate development, and major projects transforming the downtown Los Angeles skyline. Scheduled topics include a case study of the New Wilshire Grand Hotel, the Appraisal of Green Homes, Los Angeles’ Small Lot Subdivisions, Underwriting a New Deal, and Using Technology in Regression Analysis.  There’s a number of great speakers lined up, including folks from Cushman & Wakefield, Brookfield Homes, and Southern California Edison.  Three afternoon tours will examine a broad range of Southern California’s most interesting real estate.  

The full-day event kicks off with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and concludes with a cocktail mixer in the evening.  OREA credit and AI credit should be available.  Click here to register.  Look forward to seeing you there!
