Rockspring Capital President and CEO Jim McAlister IV will speak at the upcoming Land Forecast Breakfast hosted by O’Connor & Associates on Wednesday, August 17.
Privately-Owned, Houston-Based Real Estate Investment Firm
President and CEO to Discuss Local Land Market Trends
McAlister, whose firm focuses on investment opportunities in the robust “Texas Triangle” region of Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas – Fort Worth, will inform attendees about the state of the land market in Houston. He will discuss factors creating value and demand for the city’s land, how long and short-term trends are impacting the land market and how these factors are affecting the larger real estate market.
“Houston, much like the state of Texas, has a relatively healthy real estate market by any measure right now when compared to the rest of the country because of population growth and job creation as well as favorable land supply and demand metrics,” said McAlister, who joined Rockspring Capital in 1993 and today is responsible for overseeing the company and its investment activities. “What’s important for those of us in the industry to understand is how these unique factors are impacting the market in order to make the most of this opportunity.”
The breakfast, which is part of an ongoing series of real estate forecast events hosted by O’Connor & Associates where presenters share their thoughts on trends and outlooks for a variety of commercial land uses, will be from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at the Courtyard on St. James (1885 St. James Place near the Galleria).
