Reserve your spot at the Real Estate and Economic Outlook Conference

There are a few spots left at the 2012 Wisconsin Real Estate and Economic Outlook Conference at Madison's Fluno Center on June 1st. The conference will feature exciting keynote presentations from
  • Karl “Chip” Case, Co-Founder of the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index and Professor Emeritus of Economics at Wellesley College

2012 will be a pivotal year for the housing industry. Developing and advancing bipartisan solutions to fix the nation’s ongoing housing challenges have proven difficult in today’s highly polarized political environment. But housing is not only a basic human need--it is also a critical element of our economy. Now more than ever is the time to take a fresh look at this issue and consider these and other critical questions:

What policies should the current or the next administration implement to design a healthy, responsible, functioning, and efficient housing market?
What are the key lessons from past housing programs and policies such as HAMP and HAFA? How can we apply those lessons to future policy prescriptions?
What are the best solutions for addressing the massive inventories of vacant properties due to foreclosures?
Will the recent $26 billion multi-state mortgage settlement against big banks help struggling homeowners?   What are the potential outcomes of GSE reform?What are the right roles for lenders, capital markets, regulators, insurers, servicers, governmental entities, and consumers to play?
What options will Americans of modest means have in regard to their housing needs?

Register now and join the discussion. Registration deadline is Monday May 21.
