2017 Outlook: What's next for our housing and mortgage nation?

What's next for our housing and mortgage nation in 2017?

FREE HousingWire Webinar — Wednesday, April 26
11:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM CST / 2:00 PM EST

Join us for an extended Q&A with industry experts

The mortgage market is currently faced with a rising interest rate environment. Industry economists project a 40% drop in refi activity. Where will originators find purchase volume? What's next for the housing economy? How will industry leaders adapt to current market conditions?

NOTE: Based on reader surveys of our previous webinars, HousingWire is taking the political lean out of the conversation and focusing instead on current realities, such as appreciating home values and rising interest rates. We will arm attendees with knowledge, not bombastic observations on beltway probabilities.

There will likely be some slides but this will be more of an extended Q&A between attendees and our gathered subject matter experts. ASK THEM ANYTHING!
