Alicia, if you love the house, buy it

MAR President Patti Lawton moderated the real estate economic panel at the 2008 New England REALTORS Regional Conference (NERC). Panelists included Lawrence Yun, NAR's Chief Economist and Alicia Sasser, Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's New England Public Policy Center.

They reviewed economic and policy issues impacting real estate in New England and provided their outlook. Presentation materials (Powerpoint and printable documents) for both economists are at this link under Presentations. The best quote came during the question and answer period when Alicia Sasser mentioned discussing a home she loved and was considering buying with another Boston-based economist.

His response to her, "Alicia, if you love the house, buy it. What are you waiting for?"
