MORTGAGE FINANCING CRITERIA AND THE 2008 RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY ASSET BUBBLE


Join Ed Dodson as he provides an insider’s account of the 2008 property bubble.

In this interactive webinar, Edward Dodson discusses the mortgage finance sector ’s response to the declining affordability of residential properties that began in the early 1990s and culminated in the crash of 2008. The discussion will highlight the gradual erosion of lending requirements by Fannie Mae as the main cause of the housing bubble and offer a number of recommendations to minimize the potential for a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis.

Speaker: Edward Dodson
Date: Thursday July 8th, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
