2017 Economic and Property Update Webinar with Matthew Gilligan and Tony Alexander



GRA's annual Economic & Property Update is one of our most popular annual events, where Matthew Gilligan and Tony Alexander give their predictions for the economy and the property market. However, because we only hold it in Auckland many people are unable to attend. To give everyone a chance to hear what Tony and Matthew have to say, we are running a 'post-election special' of this event as a webinar.

This webinar will be held immediately after the election on Tuesday 26 September at 7:30pm for the small registration fee of $5.
Join Matthew Gilligan and Tony Alexander on the Economic & Property Update Post-election Special Webinar as they give their election analysis. They will talk about what is likely to happen in the economy and property market over the next 12 months, the factors influencing the market and how you can invest in the current conditions and profit, no matter what region you are in.
