Institutional Frenzy: Large-scale investors and the impact on smaller buyers (Commercial)
Large institutional buyers have been snapping up commercial real estate portfolios along the Front Range. What is driving this frenzied market? And with record-breaking prices commonplace, what types of properties are left for smaller buyers and potential owner-occupiers?
Creative Lending Solutions (Residential)
Home buyers have faced a difficult market, with high demand and limited inventory driving up prices. Bidding wars have become commonplace in the Boulder Valley, and appraisals have not been keeping up with price escalations. What innovative lending solutions have emerged to help buyers close the gap?
Census 2020 — Population Trends and the Real Estate Market (Plenary)
The 2020 Census numbers are in, but what does the data say about the Boulder Valley and Front Range housing markets?

With the 2020 count behind us, we’ll take a look at what to expect in residential demand in the next decade.
Lab-Space Shortage — Challenges in addressing a critical need (Plenary)
Laboratory space is in short supply throughout the Boulder-Denver corridor, and building out new space is a costly endeavor. What real estate options exist for startup and established life-sciences companies in the Boulder Valley, and how can developers help fill the void, either through new construction or conversion of existing buildings?
Breaking Ground (Commercial)
Communities throughout the Boulder Valley are seeing a wave of new commercial construction, with some projects in the planning stage and others already emerging from the ground. Our panel of development directors will provide a complete rundown of the region’s top projects. This panel is a huge hit year after year!
Are we in a bubble? (Residential)
Surging housing prices. Low inventories. Bidding wars. These factors have led some to conclude that the current housing boom is a bubble, but what do the underlying numbers really tell us about the market? What should buyers, sellers and agents expect in the coming months, and what would a bubble really look like?
