Attention Louisiana Investors: FHFA Director Mel Watt is coming to town

Attention Louisiana Investors: FHFA Director Mel Watt is coming to town

Federal Home Financing Agency Director Mel Watt is coming to the Big Easy this week and will be speaking at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 2014 Expo in New Orleans. 

Mr. Watt is speaking at the Morial Convention Center on Friday morning, November 7th, from 8:30-10:30 am, at a session titled “Residential Economic Issues and Trends Forum.” According to NAR, Watt is expected to address the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s perspective on challenges that impact the housing market, as well what can be done to help facilitate the market’s continued recovery.

Of course, as we know, there is no more important issue impacting the housing market today than the Treasury’s continued sweep of shareholder profits under the guise of conservatorship, and no more critical challenge to overcome than forging a path out of that system. This is a great opportunity to remind the Administration of these issues. Please let us know if you plan to go! 

While this is a ticketed event, it’s a great chance for local investors to get together and see Mr. Watt speak in person, and even take advantage of some of the other wide-ranging educational sessions available at the expo. Those interested in attending can register online, and also onsite at the Morial Convention Center later this week.
