This is the fouteenth year of the forum. Attendees are a cross section of our New Mexico real estate community plus a number of out-of-state real estate professionals. Our goal with the forum is to have attendees come away with a better understanding of the linkage between our local economy and the operation of the apartment rental market, and to gain insights from market leading investors and property managers about the current status of the local market, its anticipated performance in the year ahead, overview the performance and trends in our market compared to major markets throughout the West and to analyze data trends locally versus national information.
Owners, developers, regional managers, on-site personnel, and commercial brokers benefit from the information presented.
