Arizona’s real estate market is always changing, but those who want to buy or sell their homes in 2014 can get some tips from experts during the “Phoenix Housing Market Explained II” on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

The event, hosted by The Arizona Republic and the W. P. Carey School of Business, will feature speakers Catherine Reagor, senior real estate reporter for The Arizona Republic; Mike Orr, director of the Center for Real Estate Theory and Practice at the W. P. Carey School of Business; and Mark Stapp, director of the Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program at the W. P. Carey School of Business.

“This is a chance for those thinking about buying or selling homes in the Phoenix area to hear about current price trends and other developments that may affect them,” Reagor said in a statement.

According to the latest report from the W.P. Carey School of Business, single-family home prices and townhouse prices are on the rise, along with supply, while demand is significantly lower than last year.
