Video Banner_MReport

On Wednesday, the Urban Institute and CoreLogic hosted the 5th Annual Housing Finance Symposium with this year's theme being "Housing Finance, Affordability, and Supply in the Digital Age". Questions posed during the event included:

  • How can we better understand the challenges of income variability, different age cohorts, credit scoring, and access to down payments?
  • What are the obstacles to increasing the residential housing supply?
  • How is the adaptation of regulation and technology shaping customer acquisition strategies?
  • What will technological innovation in financial services mean for the diverse borrowers of the future, and how can technology reduce loan defects and advance industry safety and soundness?

In addition to representatives from the Urban Institute and CoreLogic, executives from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the National Association of Homebuilders, Terwilliger Center, Docutech, FormFree, and Blend were also among the speakers.
