A local real estate agent is hosting a presentation on economic forecasting by the chief economist for Windermere Real Estate, Matthew Gardner, at 6 p.m. on Monday Feb. 12.
Louis Muniz, who works for Windermere’s Freeland office, decided to bring Gardner to the island after seeing previous presentations.
“I’ve seen him speak at different events probably three or four times and I always came away with a lot of great information,” said Muniz. “And I thought it was something our community could really benefit from.”
Gardner will focus on the housing market, projected home sales, mortgage interest rates and economic vitality throughout the region and nation.
Gardner has over 27 years of professional experience as a financial economist, according to Muniz. Homebuyers, those who want to sell their home builders or people wanting to assess their investments can benefit from this type of information, he said.
The presentation will take place at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, and ticket proceeds will be donated to WICA. Admission is $12.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. for networking and a cocktail hour, and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m.
More information can be obtained by calling Muniz at 360-969-1028.
Tickets are available at the WICA box office or at wicaonline.org
