The Real Estate Private Equity Forum on Land & Homebuilding

From the producers of the Opportunity Funds (1,000+ attendees) and the Single Family Aggregation events (800+ attendees), Information Management Network brings you The Real Estate Private Equity Forum on Land & Homebuilding. The real estate crash of 2007 hit land and homebuilders first and hardest. From 2007 until very recently there weren't any new homes being built and land, held by homebuilders and investors was being foreclosed on by banks or in the most extreme cases being turned back into farm land. Now with a shortage of new homes, homebuilders are again in a building mode. Much of the formerly distressed land has been bought at very low prices by private equity and real estate opportunity funds. These funds are now selling the land, partnering with or financing builders in their acquisition of these lots. »
