“This event promises to be our best yet,” said Steven Laposa, director of the Everitt Real Estate Center. “Information discussed and released at this event is highly relevant and applied for today and tomorrow’s business environment.”

As the chief economist for the Federal Reserve in Denver, Snead is responsible for evaluating economic developments in the Colorado, Wyoming and northern New Mexico regions. He obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology and his doctorate from Oklahoma State University.

During the conference, the Everitt Real Estate Center plans to release second quarter 2009 residential neighborhood home price indices for Boulder, Larimer and Weld counties. These one-of-a-kind statistics look at housing prices over a 12-year period from a neighborhood level and in previous quarters have shown the Northern Colorado real estate market to be strong in selective neighborhoods, even in these uncertain economic times.

In addition to updates on national and regional real estate capital markets, the center will release results from the inaugural Northern Colorado Commercial Real Estate 2010 survey. The survey was completed by more than 220 respondents covering a variety of critical topics affecting the future performance of Northern Colorado’s commercial real estate markets. Residential and commercial industry representatives will respond and discuss key findings from the center’s new research.

Founded in 2000, the Everitt Real Estate Center was established to produce and disseminate knowledge, to provide applied research solutions that address current and future real estate related needs of Northern Colorado, the Front Range of Colorado and the West. The center also aims to equip Colorado State University students, center members and the local community-at-large by developing real estate educational programs that supplement standard academic and industry training initiatives.
