From all the coverage of distressed properties, distressed sales and real estate-owned auctioneers, the consensus has emerged that distressed servicing is hot business. Nowhere will that idea be clearer than down in scenic Austin, Texas this November at the launch of Distressed Servicing 2009 -- HousingWire's first-ever hosted event. But just like our news coverage, the discussion is exclusive (at least, it's by invitation only, so act quickly and request an invitation). HousingWire hosts the discussion on the globalization of mortgage markets along with EuroCatalyst and EuropeServicing, whose events for the last seven years have rocked the European market (now we can officially say our managing editor Jacob Gaffney isn't the only good thing we've brought out of Europe). The event will mark the convergence of the primary and secondary markets on the issue of default servicing. It's a marriage across the mortgage finance market that HousingWire knows intimately and covers daily. But heck, we don't want to give it away.
