Economics - 2017 Market Outlook Highlights | Chicago Association of REALTORS®

The responsibility of REALTORS® as economic stewards and the challenges of low inventory were the main points of discussion for the panel. However, each brought their own unique focus and professional expertise to the table.

Economics: Charles Wurtzebach, PhD, Real Estate Center at DePaul University

Developing technology is making the search process less cumbersome and financial decisions easier. While people are pretty good at marketing and sales, they are less proficient at evaluating risk. Chicago’s real estate market is doing well because suburban companies are moving downtown to be where the action is.
