This is the industry event that brings together the widest range and highest level of speakers, industry information, and networking opportunities. Industry leaders who need to know what is happening in the real estate finance industry and want to be on the winning side in its future will be in Washington for the MBA’s annual convention this October.
For the past 13 years, leaders, servicers and investors from across the mortgage industry have gathered for the National Property Preservation Conference to focus on the issues affecting the industry and formulate solutions. This year’s event takes place November 5-7 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, Maryland, and Aspen Grove Solutions will be there. Participants will be central to a forum that encourages partnership, support, and cooperation across the industry—something that is pivotal to the ongoing success of everybody engaged in mortgage servicing.
About the NPCC
The first National Property Preservation Conference was organized by Safeguard Properties founder Robert Klein in 2004 in Washington, DC. The two-day conference attracted leaders from HUD, the GSEs, mortgage servicing, and national property preservation companies. It secured support required to sustain its success throughout the years. Since that first event in 2004, the industry has seen some huge changes. Disasters such as hurricanes Katrina and Sandy razed entire communities, forcing the nation to join forces to help those worst affected. Then the economy and housing market imploded, before launching a path to recovery. Add to that the changes in municipal, state, and federal laws and regulations, and you have an industry that has been completely transformed.
As the industry continues to negotiate its way in this changed landscape, the NPPC remains the only platform for all facets of the industry to work together on the best ways to preserve and protect vacant and abandoned properties. This year’s sessions will focus on the state of the preservation industry, submitting the perfect bid, mitigating blight, Fannie Mae’s pre-sale initiative with Mr. Cooper, and HUD’s recommendations for handling common property issues.
Environmental activist and best-selling author Erin Brockovich will deliver a speech and Q&A session on November 6.
