Increasing foreclosures are expected to create some 2 million property listings that weren’t on the market last year. In keeping with the theme of Real Estate Connect San Francisco this summer, Inman News has added a special pre-conference workshop to focus on this burgeoning segment, which presents both an opportunity for the industry to grow business and a chance to reach out to troubled homeowners.
The foreclosure opportunity in many cases is being missed, insiders say. Brokers and agents either don’t know how to crack this complicated market or haven’t tried.
The Connect Foreclosures Workshop will pull together some of the nation’s top movers in the foreclosure space to look at technology’s role in the foreclosure process, where we are in this cycle and where MLSs and trade associations fit in.
The half-day workshop takes place July 23 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, just before the official kick-off of the full Connect conference.
Workshop topics include:
- Foreclosures 2.0: Using Technology to Gain Business
- Relationships 2.0: How to Help Homeowners While Closing Business
- MLS and Trade Associations: What’s the Industry’s Role in the Foreclosure Mess?
- Foreclosure Landscape: A Look at Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Headed
Attendees can register for the foreclosure workshop only, or as part of the full-conference package. Pricing information can be found on the registration page at this link.
The theme for this year’s Real Estate Connect conference is "Opportunities for Today." While the industry continues to struggle through tough market conditions, innovation and opportunity are still very much alive.
The industry’s top leaders will meet to discuss when the recovery will come, where new buyers are coming from, how to sort out the MLS mess, how to untangle social media, how to get radical with real estate marketing and blogging, and many more debates.
