10th Annual Housing Conference – On November 17, 2021 -- Join AEI for the 10th annual housing conference, a two-day virtual conference. On the first day, AEI experts will share lessons learned from their efforts to objectively measure housing market trends and apply them to today’s market conditions. Panelists will discuss groundbreaking housing data, walkable-oriented development, and the history of mortgage lending and risk.
The second day will focus on AEI Housing Center research regarding claims of systemic racism in housing. A focus will be a heavily cited 2018 Brookings Institution study, “The Devaluation of Assets in Black Neighborhoods,” which attributes large race-based differences in home values to systemic racism, but the AEI Housing Center finds they are actually due largely to socioeconomic status (SES) differences. Recognizing SES factors is key to addressing systemic disadvantages.
