SEATTLE, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After more than five years of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conservatorship, now is the time to move past the temporary fixes that were put in place during the crisis and create a functional and sustainable housing finance system. But with so many plans being put forward, it can be confusing for consumers to understand how changes to the mortgage finance system might affect them. What is in store for the future of mortgage finance? How will the reform of government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) evolve with the housing recovery?
To answer some of these questions, Zillow®, the leading real estate information marketplace, along with the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) will host a full-day event entitled "Getting Our House in Order: Solving the Lingering Issues of the Housing Recession," Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
