With more than 30 years of experience as a housing scholar and expert in the field of mortgage finance and housing policy, Kent Colton, president of The Colton Housing Group & Senior Scholar at the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University, will present “Framing the Future of Housing Finance: A Practical Guide to Reforming the System,” a lecture on the future of the nation’s housing finance. He says the recovery is limping along because there has not been housing finance reform, according to statecollege.com. Noting the importance of absolutely qualified borrowers, he adds the private sector should be primary but it also needs to contribute to a fund to cover risk. MHProNews has learned his talk will be held Nov. 6 at Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania.
