This year’s annual Housing Forecast gathered over 500 people from across the industry to hear expert analysis of the home building industry’s outlook for the coming year. This year, we heard from NAHB’s Chief Economist Robert Dietz and State of Oregon Economist Josh Lehner discuss both national and local trends that will have an impact on the near and long-term production of housing in our region. We’re also grateful for former HBA and NAHB Chairman Jim Irvine for his skilled moderation of the event and its Q&A.
