During the 2022 ALA Conference in Austin, Texas, Real Estate Consultant John Burns will share his firm’s views on the shifts in the housing market, digging into the details of what is happening across the country. Burns has a team of more than 100 people researching how current factors, economic and otherwise, are impacting the market and what can be expected over the next few years. 

In a video previewing his keynote address, Burns details how he will dive into the current housing market and the role investors are playing in housing cost and inventory. He will also explore the change in mortgage rates and explain how that will affect the market moving forward.
