At this point, we’re all aware of Brexit. But being aware isn’t enough. As real estate professionals, we’re often asked: “How’s the market?” So it’s important to be up-to-speed and have an informed opinion on world events, especially those with an impact on our business. So what does Britain leaving the EU mean and how will it impact real estate specifically? In this session, we’ll discuss Brexit’s impact on the industry – from interest rates to foreign investment in the US and beyond.
Will home values rise? Will demand from foreign buyers increase? We answer these questions and more as we take a look at how our increasingly interconnected global economy reacts to Britain’s grand Brexit.
