On May 12, GWSB’s Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis hosted a conference on “The Future of Housing Finance: Managing at a Time of Uncertainty” before a packed house in the Marvin Center’s Grand Ballroom. U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) and Acting Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency Edward DeMarco delivered keynote speeches. They were joined by experts from both the public and private sectors who discussed an array of policy options to pull the housing market out of its present doldrums and prevent future housing crises. While many of the speakers were optimistic that the nation’s housing market is beginning to recover, no consensus was reached in terms of the government’s role in the mortgage market.
The Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis (CREUA) supports original research and educational programs about real estate and urban residential, development and commercial properties in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area. Robert Van Order, professor of finance and Oliver T. Carr Professor of Real Estate, is chairman of CREUA.
