The Maine Real Estate & Development Association is excited to virtually bring you its 2021 Spring Conference. Not our typical “spring conference”, this year’s virtual event will combine the unveiling of the 2021 MEREDA Index, as well as recognition of our 2020 Notable Project Recipients!

Approved for 2.00 clock hours of Broker & Legal Continuing Education Credits.

MEREDA Index: As a key economic indicator for Maine, the MEREDA Index measures the pulse of the state’s real estate industry. The MEREDA Index is the leading way our industry tracks changes in Maine’s real estate markets. It’s a composite of nine measures reflecting activity in both new development and existing properties, in commercial and residential markets, as well as construction employment.

The current MEREDA Index contains a measurement and presentation of the real estate market in Maine, and its various components for all of 2020. Dr. Charles Colgan, the economist who prepares the Index, will be on hand to discuss the three sectors of the Index, followed by a panel discussion between three experts in each of those sectors. Roccy Risbara of Risbara Bros. Construction Company will cover the construction market, Joe Dasco of Reger Dasco Properties will cover residential, and Cheri Bonawitz of Malone Commercial Brokers will cover the commercial market.

MEREDA Celebrates Real Estate Development in Maine: MEREDA is thrilled to recognize some of the state’s most noteworthy and significant real estate projects. All not only embody MEREDA’s belief in responsible development, but also involved a significant investment of resources and job creation statewide The Top 6 Notable Projects for 2020 have been chosen and will be recognized at this event.
