Preliminary Agenda At-A-Glance
April 20-21, 2023 | Hotel AKA Brickell, Miami, FL
Thursday, April 20
|9:00 a.m - 6:00 p.m.||Registration
|9:30 - 10:30 a.m.||Data Science and Geospatial Visualization Workshop
|10:30 - 11:30 a.m.||Networking Roundtables|
|11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.||Lunch on Own|
|1:00 - 1:10 p.m.||Introduction
|1:10 - 2:10 p.m.||Economic Outlook
A year ago the Fed began tightening monetary policy to counter inflation. Raising the fed funds rate by 450 basis points was widely expected to result in recession, yet the unemployment rate is at a 50-year low while consumer spending remains fairly robust. This session will examine the economic outlook over the next 12-18 months and offer insight on whether recession is still on the horizon and how soon inflation will moderate enough to give the Fed room to stop tightening.
|2:10 - 3:00 p.m.||Investing in a Higher Rate World
Intermediate- and long-term Treasury yields began rising three years ago after falling for almost 40 years, and are now at their highest levels in more than 10 years. Realized cap rates have not followed suit thus far, but investment transactions have slowed greatly. This session will look at the impact of higher interest rates on property valuation, cap rates, and the transactions market in the coming year.
|3:00 - 3:15 p.m.||Break|
|3:15 - 4:10 p.m.||Insurance and Risk in a Climate Crisis World
Storms, floods, droughts, and other extreme climate events have increased casualty risks greatly across all real estate classes, with a resulting increase in insurance costs. How will these risks play out in the near- and intermediate-term future and how can apartment owners and managers best respond? Hear the perspective of both equity and debt experts regarding how to address these issues and get a preview of findings from NMHC’s new insurance cost survey.
|4:10 - 5:00 p.m.||Strategies to Respond to Regulatory Risks
Local jurisdictions across the country are grappling with ways to solve the problem of housing affordability. Some have chosen to enact measures like rent controls, eviction moratoriums, and mandatory inclusionary zoning requirements that seek not to increase the supply of housing (affordable and market-rate) but rather to mandate affordability into being. This panel will look at the landscape of such measures across the country and examine some strategies apartment firms might consider when confronted by such restrictions.
|5:00 - 6:00 p.m.||Networking Reception|
Friday, April 21
|7:45 a.m. - Noon||Registration
|8:00 - 9:00 a.m.||Networking Breakfast
|9:00 - 9:45 a.m.||America’s Missing Households
Millions of America's households are hidden from statistics. For instance, because a household is defined as all people living in a single housing unit, data do not disclose the true number of households. While many of these multiple and multi-generational households share the same house by choice, many others do so only by necessity for lack of available and economically attainable housing. Dr. Arthur C. Nelson will share his recent research that untangles census data to estimate the true number of households. The difference between the true number of households and those counted by the Census comprise America's Missing Households. Dr. Nelson will also explore housing policy and market implications.
|9:45 - 10:35 a.m.||Local Solutions to Housing Affordability
More and more states, counties, and cities have undertaken policies to increase the supply of housing, including things like relaxing single-family only (SFO) zoning restrictions and eliminating parking mandates on new construction. Even so, apartments remain illegal throughout much of the nation. This panel will discuss the extent of these policies currently and how much they have affected (or are likely to affect) the supply of housing.
|10:35 - 10:45 a.m.||Networking Break|
|10:45 - 11:40 a.m.||Apartment Markets Round-Up
Always one of the most popular sessions at the Research Forum, this panel will gauge the impact of the changing economic landscape – including higher mortgage rates and increased uncertainty – on the demand for apartments. It will also analyze how quickly the record number of apartments under construction will actually come on line, and whether that will be enough to counter the longstanding undersupply of housing of all types.
|11:40 - 11:45 a.m.||Concluding Remarks
|1:30 p.m.||Optional Property Tour of SOMA at Brickell Apartments
Note: Updated as of 3/16/2023. The agenda is subject to change. Check back periodically for updates. Please be aware that photos may be taken at the meeting and posted online.
