Waltham, MA – The Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston (BRAGB) recently hosted its annual Economic Forecast Dinner at the Marriott in Newton.

The sold-out event featured research and analysis regarding the Massachusetts housing market. David Crowe, Ph.D., National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) chief economist and senior vice president, gave the keynote address and included his outlook for the economy as a whole and the Massachusetts housing market moving forward.

“It’s been a long and slow recovery since the crash of 2008, but if you think of the early 2000s as the last ‘normal,’ the single-family home market in Massachusetts is in a similar place to the rest of the US at about 53% of the way back to normal, and should be about 87% back by the end of 2017,” said Crowe.

Association officers and directors were sworn in by Massachusetts Public Safety Commissioner Matt Carlin.

In addition to providing expert insight from industry leaders, the event also served as a platform for BRAGB to announce its new leadership team for 2016.
