Conference Information

SMITH’s Research & Ratings will host its 24th annual  Affordable Housing Finance Conference at The Palms Resort & Spa in Miami Beach, Florida. 

Constraints on income have created affordability gaps, while demand remains pent-up in major markets. Are the lenders looking at the upside potential of today's first-time buyers or remaining focused on the rearview mirror? 

What's more, millennials have expressed a preference for multifamily rentals as part of a long-term desire to have economic mobility. What can housing policies do to recognize the changing demographics of demand? 

SMITH's Affordable Housing Conference explores the many issues facing the market and helps participants develop actionable solutions. 

The overarching questions are: Where are there opportunities for housing sector investors and how will the affordable housing sector look going forward.
