A while back, I was invited by the Long Island Chapter of the Appraisal Institute  to keynote for their winter dinner/seminar tonight in Westbury, Long Island:
LI Housing Market: Transitioning from “Recovery” to “Recovered” 
It’ll be great to catch up with my friends and colleagues and I always love to talk appraisalspeak for extended periods of time.

In a question and answer period, discussion will include Snapshot of the Long Island Housing market, including 4Q 2013 market research results in Long Island, Hamptons and the North Fork; Affordability, What is driving Sales Activity?; The relationship between Sales and Prices – Why is inventory low?; Spike in Mortgage Rates; Federal Reserve taper miscommunication; Why are Housing Prices Rising?; Long Island and Manhattan real estate economy, Credit Issues, Lending, Market Trends, Impacts, and Challenges in Year 2014.
The latest Nor’easter  is supposed to start at about 2AM so it looks like we’ll get this done just under the wire!
