Building Wealth through Homeownership, Post Crisis

Even after the devastating housing crisis, homeownership continues to be an essential driving force for Americans, who continue to place high value on it.  Opportunities in today’s market include low mortgage rates, flexible mortgage terms, a favorable buyer’s market and a steady and ample supply of real estate product.

The current state of the financial services and real estate markets suggests there may never be a better time for Americans to pursue homeownership, particularly for the poor and underserved.  A new window of opportunity is presenting itself for players who previously may have stayed on the sidelines.

On the business side, a sizable vacuum has emerged in the wake of the market collapse.  Regional banks, which have developed distinct competitive advantages in the emerging marketplace, are particularly well positioned to capitalize on this situation.

This workshop will examine ways for renters and housing businesses to take advantage of these new opportunities in home ownership before this favorable environment shifts again.
