The State of the U.S. Housing Market and Future Outlook

This session offers a comprehensive overview of the U.S. housing market, analyzing current conditions and future projections. It begins with an examination of national macrotrends influencing housing, including policy changes, modular housing innovations, and capital market shifts. We then explore diverse deal-making strategies and local market activities, highlighting examples such as office conversions in Atlanta for mixed-use development, non-traditional financing models like those used by Amazon and the University of California, and transit-oriented developments focusing on affordable housing in Bellevue. The session also covers the largest affordable housing project under the CA Surplus Land Act in San Diego, HUD's green retrofit program, and unique value strategies in Harris County's housing market. By integrating macro trends with specific case studies, this discussion aims to provide attendees with actionable insights into the evolving landscape of affordable and workforce housing across the United States.
