What to expect at HousingWire’s Spring Summit
Today’s HousingWire Daily episode features an interview with HousingWire Editor in Chief Sarah Wheeler. In this episode, Wheeler discusses HousingWire’s upcoming Spring Summit on March 4, and what attendees can expect from the virtual conference.
For some background on the interview, here’s a brief summary of HousingWire’s latest coverage on the summit:
Low interest rates, high demand and a shortage of available housing stock have stoked an incredibly competitive housing market this spring. But as rates rise off historic lows and more inventory comes online, home prices could start to cool. That’s why we’ve invited Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather to discuss the economic forecast at HousingWire’s Spring Summit on March 4.
Fairweather will be joined by CoreLogic Deputy Chief Economist Selma Hepp, First American Deputy Chief Economist Odeta Kushi and HousingWire Lead Analyst Logan Mohtashami on a panel looking at the economic factors in play for the rest of 2021.
During the housing crisis, Fairweather worked as a researcher at the Boston Fed studying why homeowners entered foreclosure. Before joining Redfin she served as senior economist at Amazon, working on problems related to employee engagement and managing a team of analysts.
The focus of the Spring Summit is The Year-Round Purchase Market. Record low rates led to a banner year for mortgage lenders in 2020, and with a demographic tsunami of Millennial homebuyers entering the housing market, this year is expected to be just as incredible.
The summit covers topics that are critical to success in another unprecedented year, including:
- What mortgage tech is solving now
- Servicing challenges in a pandemic period
- Operational strategies in the current market
- The brave new world of valuations
- eClosing/RON update
- A new regulatory regime
