What's Next? Prognosis and Prospects for Housing and Urban Form after the Crisis

There are no shortages of forecasts for how housing markets and urban development might change over the next decades as a result of the foreclosure crisis, financial regulatory reform, the restructuring of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and other seismic shifts in financial markets and public policy. For many, the volume and pace of change in recent years in this arena have been overwhelming. What do we know - or think we know -- about the future of housing markets, housing finance, and homeownership? What about prospects for rental housing? What will various changes in housing finance and public policy mean for our urban and suburban futures? Will the new financial structures and associated policy thrusts align with an agenda of sustainable urban development and planning or work against it? What about goals of social equity and efforts to provide decent housing for lower-income households? What policy choices lay ahead that will be pivotal in answering some of these questions?

Immergluck conducts research on housing and real estate markets, mortgage finance and foreclosures, community reinvestment and fair lending, neighborhood change, and related public policy. He teaches courses in real estate finance, housing policy and research methods. Dr. Immergluck has authored three books, more than 30 articles in scholarly journals and scores of applied research and policy reports. He manages applied research projects at local and national levels. He has testified before Congress and state and local legislative bodies. His work has been cited in a wide variety of government and policy reports. Professor Immergluck has been frequently quoted and cited in the media, including in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Time Magazine, USA Today and a wide variety of regional and local newspapers. His most recent book, Foreclosed: High-Risk Lending, Deregulation, and the Undermining of America's Mortgage Market, was reissued in paperback in 2011 by Cornell University Press.
