People in the St. Louis region know public transit creates jobs, promotes spending, and stimulates local economies; but they may not be aware that it also helps increase property values. Come learn more, as Hugh Morris of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) in Washington, DC, shares insight from a recent report, completed in partnership with the American Public Transit Association, at Citizens for Modern Transit’s (CMT) next “Talking Transit” event. It is being held on Wednesday, March 4, at 8:30 a.m. at T-REX, located on the top floor of the T-REX building, where CMT’s offices are located, at 911 Washington, St. Louis, MO 63101.
Morris will showcase the performance of residential and commercial property sales between 2012 and 2016 in areas near fixed-guideway transit stations and those without public transit access in small, medium, and large regions, including Boston, Mass.; Eugene, Ore.; Hartford, Conn.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Minneapolis–St. Paul, Minn.; Phoenix, Ariz.; and Seattle, Wash. He will also discuss what this means for development near transit in the St. Louis market.
Citizens for Modern Transit is hosting this event in conjunction with the St. Louis REALTORS®. Registration can be completed online at www.cmt-stl.org. The cost is free for CMT and St. Louis REALTORS® members, and $10 for non-members. A limited number of scholarships are available to those with personal financial constraints.
