This event is exclusively for SPUR business members and invited guests. Please contact Amanda Fasenmyer, director of corporate philanthropy, at [email protected] for information on how your organization can get involved and support our work.


Over the past few months, newspaper headlines have highlighted the historic drop in Bay Area rents. Meanwhile, the sale prices for home across the Bay Area have reached new highs. What might these trends mean for the Bay Area housing market? How might these trends affect dynamics between homebuyers and sellers? Join SPUR and Cheryl Young, Senior Economist at Zillow, for an in-depth analysis and discussion of real estate and consumer trends in the Bay Area.


Registration closes on Monday, November 16th at 5 p.m. A link to the program will be sent to registered attendees on the evening of November 16th. Please email advance questions for the speakers to Livesey Pack at [email protected].
