COLLEGE STATION (Real Estate Center) – As the new year begins, the question on most investors’ minds is “what’s in store for the U.S. economy in 2010?”

 Real Estate Center Chief Economist Dr. Mark Dotzour has some thoughts on the matter, putting him in high demand lately.

“The good news is that people are tired of being afraid,” Dotzour said at a recent conference sponsored by the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP). “Consumer confidence is picking up and the private sector is about to turn around. The private sector has right-sized.”

Dotzour’s remarks were included in the winter issue of NAIOP’s magazine, Development

While Dotzour is used to taking his show on the road, now he’s taking it online as well.

He recently shared his thoughts on the future of the commercial real estate market in a 44-minute webinar for the National Association of Realtors (NAR). You can listen to the presentation and view his Powerpoint presentation on NAR’s website.
