Through a new alliance between the two organizations, the Urban Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based economic and social policy research organization, is now using CoreLogic's data and analytics to help power the research conducted by its new Housing Finance Policy Center.
The new partnership was announced during a recent Washington, D.C., event that the organizations co-hosted, titled "Data, Demand and Demographics: A Symposium on Housing Finance." The symposium featured housing and economic experts from the government, nonprofit and private sectors, who delivered keynote presentations and led interactive panel presentations with open discussions.
As per a CoreLogic press release, a number of pressing topics were discussed, including the demographics of the homeowner and rental populations of the future, how to increase liquidity and transparency in the mortgage-backed-securities markets, the future needs for rental housing financing, and how to best improve credit availability.
The principal goal of the new alliance is to enable Urban's Housing Finance Policy Center to enhance its analytical work using CoreLogic's data. In turn, it will use this data to create reports that inform public policy.
‘We believe this is a real win-win relationship,’ says Faith Schwartz, senior vice president of the government solutions group at CoreLogic. ‘The Urban Institute is a prominent and well-respected research organization. We couldn't be happier to work with them. This event has given our strategic alliance some great momentum. When we look at the quality of speakers, panelists and the turnout, it's easy to get excited about what this alliance can bring to the table in terms of housing policy insight.’
