Ben will be discussing:

  • what happened in real estate in 2011  and why
  • what the trends are coming into 2012, including thoughts on where the market may be going and why
  • thoughts on areas that may perform well

As a bonus Ben will also be bringing along the latest Hegney newsletter which is full of useful information.
