Arch Mortgage Insurance  (Arch MI), a provider of private mortgage insurance and a wholly owned subsidiary of Arch Capital Group Ltd, will host a complimentary webinar discussing the recent release of their Spring 2015 Edition of its Housing and Mortgage Market Review .
The webinar will discuss the latest findings of the report, including the latest trends that influence the housing market today and a discussion of how states in the oil market could be affected by the recent drop in oil prices. Arch MI aims to help industry professionals understand what is happening in the nation’s housing market and why with their exclusive Housing Update Webinar.
Ralph DeFranco, Ph.D. Economist and author of the Housing and Mortgage Market Review , will lead two sessions to share his views on the latest data, trends, and predictions on what mortgage lenders for 2015. During each session, Dr. DeFranco will discuss recent economic and housing market trends, present the latest regional Arch MI Risk Index values (a statistical measure of the probability of home prices being lower in two years), and discuss what lower oil prices and a stronger dollar mean for housing.
“Our data shows that states with high levels of employment in the oil extraction and related industries continue to have elevated risk scores. . . . while the national average risk score remains stable and at a low level of 8 percent, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas continue to have elevated risks due to their exposure to the oil sector,” Dr. DeFranco said regarding his findings in the Housing and Mortgage Market Review.
The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, May 5 and Wednesday, May 6. Each day, there will be three time slots you can register for and there will be morning and afternoon times available.
