"The Future of Housing: What's Next for Housing Demand, Mortgage Finance, and Recovery" Scheduled for April 18 at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum
SEATTLE, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While the housing recovery has been rather uneven across the country, most metros are experiencing some form of home value appreciation and have seen a bottom in home values. But such volatility can be confusing for those in the market and for policy-makers whose decisions are affecting millions of home buyers, sellers and owners. So what is in store for the future of housing demand and mortgage finance? How will the role of investors evolve throughout the housing recovery?
To help answer some of these questions, Zillow®, the leading real estate information marketplace, the Progressive Policy Institute and the American Action Forum will host the half-day "Forum on the Future of Housing: What's Next for Housing Demand, Mortgage Finance, and Recovery" April 18 at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
"Conditions in the housing market have been changing rapidly for the past year, and sometimes it can be hard to keep up," said Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries. "This forum will explore the most significant factors affecting today's market and will give attendees a handle on what to expect for the rest of this year."
"Housing has become a potential upside in an economy that is largely moving sideways," said president of the American Action Forum and former director of the Congressional Budget Office Douglas Holtz-Eakin. "It's time to develop a comprehensive plan for federal involvement in housing finance. The stakes are enormous. Washington will be well-served to hear from experts in the field on ways to move forward."
"Bringing together leading experts, influencers and policy-makers in a true bipartisan fashion is a rare occurrence in Washington these days," said Progressive Policy Institute Fellow for Financial Markets Jason Gold. "A flurry of hearings, bills and proposals have started to emerge from Congress, making this the perfect time to consider how each will impact the ever-changing recovery."
This will be the third housing forum hosted by Zillow. The first, "America's Housing Crisis: Private-Sector Responses and Public Policy Innovation," was held in New York last April, and the second, "California's Housing Market: Navigating the Post-Bottom Landscape," was held in San Francisco in September.
Forum on the Future of Housing: What's Next for Housing Demand, Mortgage Finance, and Recovery April 18, 8 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Knight Conference Center at the Newseum 555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW Washington D.C.
