Bob Banting, President of Anderson Carr, was the featured speaker at The Risk Management Association’s February meeting. His presentation, “The Real Estate Roller Coaster” reviewed the sales of commercial and residential properties in Palm Beach County over the past decades with much of the information that was gathered for appraisals at AndersonCarr. The sales reflected trends that have fluctuated over the past 50 years in the South Florida real estate market. With a finger on the pulse of these trends, it is possible, according to Mr. Banting, to calculate with some degree of probability when the market will reach its peak in this new cycle. The real estate roller coaster has its ups and downs, but according to these past market trends, we haven’t reached the peak of this cycle and most likely won’t for the next few years.
