On Wednesday, July 13 at 10:00 am EST, Investors Unite Executive Director Tim Pagliara will host a teleconference to brief Investors Unite members and members of the media on key findings from a recent opinion survey on housing in America.

Pagliara will be joined by Douglas E. Schoen, founder and president of Schoen Consulting, who conducted the survey. On the call, Schoen will discuss highlights from the results, which include demographic data, and views on homeownership, the 2008 housing crash, and housing policy. 

Of note, the survey found that “seven in ten likely voters (70%) support the government facilitating policies to make mortgages easier and more widely available.” Respondents also weighed in on the Net Worth Sweep of government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which were placed in conservatorship in the aftermath of the financial crisis. The survey found that a plurality of likely voters believed the Sweep is a violation of shareholder rights.
