Let’s get together and talk about the housing market: Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan will headline a housing policy summit on Tuesday at the National Press Club that will get into the nitty gritty of the sector’s slow but steady recovery. Donovan will join a bunch of other housing industry experts to examine where the housing market stands and what needs to be done to provide an extra boost to accelerate its pace of recovery. The general consensus is that the housing market has hit bottom and is on the mend. At Tuesday’s summit, the future of Fannie and Freddie and how to get private capital back into the mortgage finance market will get a once- or twice-over by top economists and housing market experts.
