The alliance aims to enable the institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center “to enhance its analytical work with high integrity datasets provided by CoreLogic,” and produce informative data-driven reports, policy analyses and white papers.
It also plans to co-sponsor ongoing seminars that encourage “debate of pertinent housing policy questions” in the nation’s capital.
“It is crucial that we address the fundamental flaws in the system while preserving the policies that are working now in the recovering market,” said Gene Sperling, director of the National Economic Council and assistant to President Obama for economic policy, during the “Data, Demand and Demographics: A Symposium on Housing Finance” co-hosted by CoreLogic and the Urban Institute in Washington upon the launch of the partnership.
Pressing topics, according to these insiders, include homeowner and rental demographic changes in 2014 and beyond, how to increase liquidity and transparency in the mortgage-backed-securities markets, future demand for rental housing financing and how to best improve credit availability.
This is a win-win relationship, says Faith Schwartz, senior vice president of the government solutions group at CoreLogic, because this alliance can help generate needed housing policy insight.
