The Drivers of Current Home Prices, Distressed Properties: Expert Available, Speaks at MBA Servicing Operations Study and Forum


WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 20, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — What:              Since the mortgage meltdown, the question has been asked…when will home prices recover? The answer is not simple for lenders who are looking to revive originations or for servicers who are looking to mitigate risk in their portfolios. Assessing home prices relies on a number of factors from current market conditions to trends in short sales and REO’s.

Who:               Gordon Crawford, Ph.D., vice president of Analytics for San Diego-based DataQuick®, a provider of advanced real estate information solutions powered by data, analytics and decisioning, is providing expert commentary on:

§  The effect of distressed sales and total sales in various counties and which seem to be approaching a level of stabilization;

§  The industry need for the use of local home price indices (HPI) for mortgage risk management and a look at current home price indices for selected counties;

§  How to examine various counties’ levels of appreciation, levels of decrease after the peak and the differing amounts of recent appreciation; and

§  The examination of what sale prices to expect for different types of distressed sale dispositions

When:             Crawford is available to provide insight immediately by phone, through exclusive content, or at the 2013 MBA Servicing Operations Study and Forum for Prime and Non-Prime Servicers in Washington D.C., May 21-22.
