Following the aftermath of the Great Recession, San Joaquin Valley indicators are starting to show signs of improvement in the housing market. However, such indicators mask the realities of what’s happening on the ground in low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities that were disproportionately affected by the housing crisis. Complicating matters is the unprecedented role of investors in the housing recovery and the changing nature of local housing markets. There are pressing concerns around the potential impact of investor ownership on communities, tightening rental markets, and the ongoing challenges of preserving affordability for LMI households. This webinar provides an overview of these issues , examines housing market recovery in San Joaquin Valley, investor activity, challenges, and emerging opportunities.

This webinar will be helpful to community-based organizations, government agencies, financial institutions, housing counseling agencies, real estate firms, businesses, and affordable housing organizations.
