As always, the event will launch with Florida Realtors chief economist Dr. Brad O’Connor. He will share the latest trends for Florida’s economy and housing market.

Beyond the numbers, Dr. O’Connor will also connect with Dr. Jessica Lautz, the National Associatioin of Realtors' vice president of demographic and behavioral insights. Lautz's survey work will uncover the “why” behind buyers' and sellers' decisions. Millennials achieving homeownership, more multigenerational home purchases, and how pets influence where people choose to live are just a few of the topics they’ll discuss.

Continuing with the topic of buyer motivation, four panelists will share what is attracting residents and second home buyers to the Sunshine State. The group will include a site selector, a Realtor, and two economic developers. Each will provide a diverse perspective from four unique areas of the state. And you’ll have the opportunity to ask the panelists your questions following their conversation!

There’s a lot to learn and two ways to attend.

Be sure to add Florida Real Estate Trends, set for 12:30-2:30 p.m. Thursday, January 20, 2022, in Oceans 2-4 at SeaWorld Orlando Renaissance, to your conference schedule.

There will be box lunches available, so eat, learn, and stay ahead of the curve with knowledge of what 2022 means for your real estate business!
