Register today at www.congressandexpo.com for the 2011 National Congress & Expo which will be held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on April 26-28, 2011.
The NCC Consumer & Community Finance Forum will be held on April 26. This highly regarded annual land-lease community event will focus on a major challenge facing today’s communities – home financing. Panels of experts will discuss several proven programs for filling community vacancies that will include rental, rent-to-own and lease-purchase programs, and in-house finance programs. Topics covered will include loan origination, underwriting, managing, servicing, recovery methods, required licenses and regulatory compliance.
Here is what Kenny B. Lipschutz, SIOR, Brookside Companies had to say about the NCC Forum, “I have found the NCC Forum to be educational and very useful with applications that I can take back for our community operations after each meeting.”
Topics and speakers for the forum are as follows:
Dr. Henry Fishkind, Ph.D. will present information on the most recent national economic data and events and evaluate their impact on housing markets. Dr. Fishkind is a former associate professor of economics at the University of Florida, and Director of the University’s forecasting program.
