The Week Ahead: What’s in Store for Housing?

On Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at Noon Central, join Allan Weiss (Co-Founder of Case-Shiller-Weiss) of Weiss Analytics, and experts from Rocket Mortgage and Covius Services as they discuss key components of today’s housing market during the webinar, “Housing Price Outlook & Managing to Best Borrower Outcomes in the Year Ahead.”

Industry experts will cover a range of topics, including forecasted values given the future market environment and leading loss mitigation decisioning methodologies. Over the course of the last year, interest rates have risen, and home price appreciation has slowed or begun to decline, with different markets telling different stories. Some economists are forecasting recession ahead or a slowing of economic growth with some borrowers already affected by job loss.

Webinar attendees will hear about a cross-section of topics, including:

  • Profiles of housing markets expected to lose or increase in value in the next 12 months, derived from bottom-up, property-level data and analysis
  • How this is likely to impact borrower LTVs and performance in recently originated vintages
  • Best strategies and practices for loss mitigation and best borrower outcomes, from Rocket Mortgage, a top national servicer and recognized leader in borrower experience
  • Regulatory strategies and tactics to safeguard your loss mitigation servicing processes in a post-pandemic operating environment
  • Tactics to digitize the servicer’s execution and the borrower’s loss mitigation experience

Moderator Pete Pannes, Chief Business Officer for Covius will present a panel including Allan Weiss, Co-Founder of Case-Shiller-Weiss, and Founder of Weiss Analytics; Jennifer Keys, SVP of Covius Compliance Solutions; Ryan Zois, Senior Director of Servicing for Rocket Mortgage; Ben Milgram, Senior Director of Servicing, Rocket Mortgage; and Joe Chappell, EVP of Covius Settlement Services.
