Join us for a panel discussion on the continually rising construction costs that the residential and commercial markets have experienced. We welcome David Siegel and James Vagle of the BATC-Housing First Minnesota (formerly the Builders Association of the Twin Cities), who will present us with the builders’ view of Minnesota’s housing affordability challenges. Importantly, they will shed some light on the inputs that impact cost, such as labor, materials, land, and regulations. Of particular note, they will discuss the recent Minnesota Supreme Court Ruling in the Harstad v. Woodbury case, which decided what development fees cities can and cannot charge developers for. North Star Chapter Vice President Josh Folland, MAI, CCIM will also join the panel to discuss the appraiser’s perspective in dealing with the sometimes dichotomous relationship between cost and value.
