Lunch Keynote - To Hell and Back: The Path Forward for the Housing Market

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Eight years after the U.S. housing market hit bottom, a full recovery remains out of reach. Yes, the worst is over, with mortgage defaults back to normal and prices rising. But now comes a new set of challenges. Tight credit has shut broad swaths of the population out of homeownership, including many minority households. Millennials who came of age during the collapse aren’t rushing to buy in. Lenders are still nursing wounds, builders haven’t made up for lost time and the mortgage infrastructure is languishing in intensive care. Our speakers show us what’s next for housing and what it means for the rest of the economy.
