Due to weather and travel conditions, the start time for this event has been delayed until 9:30 a.m. 

When the School of Professional and Continuing Studies launched the Fordham Real Estate Institute last year, Robert Morganstern, the institute’s director, said the institute would be offering professionals “solid instruction by people who work every day in the industry, imparting what they know.”

To that end, the institute will present a panel of leading residential real estate experts on March 15 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at Fordham Law School, to discuss trends in the metropolitan region. Michael Stoler, managing director of Madison Realty Capital and president of New York Real Estate TV, will moderate the event.

“We’ll look at assisted living, transit oriented developments in places like New Rochelle and Yonkers, affordable housing in the outer boroughs, and market rate apartments in Manhattan,” said Stoler. “We’ll look at every aspect of the residential market.”

The panel will explore financing, tax incentives, and new opportunities in up and coming markets, such as areas where New York City’s ferry system has expanded.

“Everybody wants to know what’s happening in the world of residential real estate—from the working person to the retiree—and we’ll explore it all,” he said.
