Home Prices: Drivers and Current Conditions


DataQuick Expert to Present during September Conferences, Available for Comment 

What:    WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 5, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Positive housing outlook has been a theme during the first half of 2013, but what is contributing to strong recovery numbers? And can it be sustained? A deeper look at factors such as the recent influx in rental demand as well as some of the modeling being used to evaluate current market conditions will allow originators, servicers and valuation professionals to get a better outlook on the future strength of recovery and help them adjust their current strategy accordingly.

Further, the evidence confirms that while housing has been strong nationally, it is important to use local data to support housing investment and risk management decisions. Across the country, and even within metropolitan areas, housing conditions vary significantly.

§  Recent housing market behavior

§  Drivers of rental property investor returns

§  Overview of home price modeling framework

§  Insight on advancements in Automated Valuation Model (AVM) usage

When:            Crawford is available to provide exclusive content immediately, by phone. He will also be presenting on the subject at the following conferences:
