Cohosted by the Urban Institute and CoreLogic
The Urban Institute and CoreLogic were pleased to host the fourth annual Data, Demand, and Demographics Housing Finance Symposium. This daylong symposium explored emerging housing policy issues, including the economic outlook for multifamily and single-family market growth, how housing finance can contribute to opportunity-rich and fully inclusive communities, single-family mortgage market evolution and regulatory transformation, and the impact of technological innovation. We explored questions such as the following:
- What will supply and demand for multifamily and single-family housing look like through the end of 2016 and into early 2017?
- How can housing finance work with land-use, zoning, transportation, and environmental planning policies to create more inclusive and vibrant communities?
- What changes have occurred in the mortgage market in the post-Dodd-Frank era, and what will be the characteristics of future originations and the secondary market?
- What will technological innovation in financial services mean for the diverse borrowers of the future, and how can technology help reduce loan defects and advance industry safety and soundness?
Ed Glaeser, Fred and Eleanor Glimp professor of economics at Harvard University, delivered the opening keynote address, discussing the influence of urbanization, technological advancement, and the role of government on housing supply, urban growth, and neighborhood choice.
Other featured speakers and panelists include:
Bill Emerson, CEO, Quicken Loans
