So you’re looking for a new place, and everyone’s got an opinion—but these experts offer objective tools to help make the best choice for you. Moderated by KUOW's Ross Reynolds, this distinguished panel features finance and real-estate reporter Jane Hodges (author of Rent Vs. Own); Jon Talton (The Seattle Times’ business columnist); Christopher Bitter (of the UW's Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies), and Svenja Maarit Gudell (Zillow senior economist). The conversation can illuminate your path through the conflicting advice of real estate agents, well-intentioned friends and family, and financial advisors; debate the pros and cons of renting and owning in this volatile market; and explain how to avoid pitfalls through thoughtful planning. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life and University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
