Last August, Rockspring Capital’s President and CEO Jim McAlister was asked to speak at a Land Forecast Breakfast hosted by O’Connor & Associates. The breakfast is part of an ongoing series of real estate forecast events where presenters share their thoughts on trends and outlooks for a variety of commercial land uses. As one of the few local experts on the Houston land market, Jim provided insights on land trends and transactions (read more about the breakfast in a story from Houston’s Real Estate Bisnow here, and see some of Jim’s thoughts on the market in a follow up story which ran on the front page of the Houston Chronicle’s Business section in September 2011 here).
This year, O’Conner & Associates and Rockspring Capital will once again work together, this time as part of a strategic partnership in order to jointly publish a Texas Land Report in the near future. Based on deed transactions and changes in volume/pricing, this report will be of great benefit to all who want to know more about the recent performance of the Texas land market.
In addition, Jim McAlister will speak at O’Conner & Associates’ upcoming Land Forecast Luncheon scheduled for May 23 at the Courtyard on St. James.
