    “Master Your Market” Seminar Overview

    “Chandler Seminar To Cover Housing”

    An article by Sarah Baker of The Daily News

    Real estate information company Chandler Reports is hosting its “Master Your Market: Second Quarter Update” event for local agents, appraisers, builders, investors and bankers Thursday, Aug. 9.

    The event is slated for Thursday from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Great Hall of Germantown’s Media Room, 1900 S. Germantown Road, behind City Hall next to the tennis courts.

    Topics of discussion will include Shelby County residential and commercial sales, foreclosure analysis, new housing activity and mortgages.

    The keynote presentation will be from Shelby County Trustee David Lenoir, who will discuss the economic impact of vacant, foreclosed and tax-delinquent properties and what kind of solutions can be provided to the problem.

    “There have been a few studies out there in terms of the economic drag, if you will, on how these properties impact neighborhoods and the prices in those neighborhoods,” Lenoir said. “So (discussing) whether it’s just maintaining Shelby County, keeping it financially strong and reducing some of the debt, but then also talking about some of the down payment assistance programs, what the Land Bank is doing and how a tax sale works.”

    In the trustee’s office, Lenoir deals with real estate and tax collections of real estate property and personal business property. His presentation will serve as a precursor to several “real estate road shows” the trustee’s office is rolling out in the coming weeks, which will talk about how the tax sale process works and the current inventory of Shelby County property that the Land Bank owns.

    Lenoir said defining the state of the county’s foreclosure inventory is a difficult task.

    “I don’t think we have a ways to go, but I’m not willing to step out and say that we’ve hit the bottom, ” he said. “It’s a challenge, just due to the reporting process, to really know where we are in foreclosures. (It depends on) how aggressive are the banks, and they seem to change monthly in terms of what they’re doing with foreclosures.”

    Following Lenoir’s presentation will be remarks by Eric Furhman, president and managing broker of Crye-Leike Commercial. He will be speaking about the local commercial market and what his office is experiencing with sales and leasing activity.

    The cost to attend the seminar is $10 for Chandler Reports subscribers and $15 for non-subscribers. Attendees will receive copies of the most popular market trend reports and will be emailed the full presentation.
