Graaskamp Real Estate and Economic Outlook Conference

2013 Wisconsin Real Estate and Economic Outlook Conference

The Shifting Landscape: What's Driving Change?

October 17, 2013 | Fluno Center | Madison, Wisconsin

The American economy and job market are slowly moving in the right direction.  At the very core of renewed optimism about the strength of the recovery is the recent rebound in the housing market.   Buyers are back, building is up -- and housing is poised to add to the economy instead of pulling it down.  By 2014, it will once again be a significant contributor to job creation, consumer spending and economic gains, bolstering this weak recovery.   

But many economists predict that the climb back for the housing industry will be neither swift nor uniform.  

What forces and trends will be shaping the industry in the near future?   Demographic shifts and changing values are two dominant drivers.  In addition, the advent of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) regulations last spring has meant big changes for financial institutions’ consumer lending programs.  Lending compliance, as we know it, is undergoing a transformation—new rules and new enforcement authority has caused many procedures to be in flux.  And the word “bubble” gets tossed still gets tossed around, especially in reference to China.  

  • What’s holding back the recovery — and what are the risks and opportunities going forward? 
  • How do we need to rethink housing needs based on changing demographics and mobility trends? 
  • As the U.S. economy begins to strengthen, how will the new lending regulations impact homebuyers and lenders?  Will they stifle or support lending activity? 
  • Does China have a credit bubble and, if so, what are the implications for the global economy? 

This conference will examine these questions and present varied perspectives on where the real estate market is headed and how important demographic trends and regulatory changes will impact the real estate industry.  You will hear from experts from the public and private sectors who are involved in government, academia, and business  -- all of them on the front lines of housing market research, policy, and practice.

Demographic shifts and changing values will be a dominant factor in housing growth for the foreseeable future.  The changing needs of aging baby boomer populations, the demands of the burgeoning Echo Boomers generation, and increasing numbers of immigrants will require that the housing market respond in new and different ways.  How do we need to rethink housing needs based on changing demographics and mobility trends?

Session 3: What Do the New Mortgage Rules Mean for You?
In April, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau unveiled new lending rules that it hopes will move the mortgage market toward a sustainable middle ground, somewhere in between the free-wheeling days of no-documentation loans and the current, restrictive environment.  As the U.S. economy begins to strengthen, how will the new regulations impact homebuyers and lenders?  Will they stifle or support lending activity?  Presenters will explore if and how the housing market can thrive with new demands from a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.
