Guide For Mortgage Firms Navigating Washington, D.C.

SitusAMC, a provider of solutions supporting the entire lifecycle of real estate finance, has published a Field Guide for mortgage industry participants looking to understand and navigate the federal landscape. 

The Field Guide to the Federal Government for Housing & Housing Finance provides an in-depth, professional perspective on the key influencers in Washington, D.C. and their impact on the single-family and multifamily real estate industries. It provides insight on how Housing Finance in D.C. works and gives an overview of the process to best navigate it.

SitusAMC Head of Government and Industry Relations Tim Rood, who advises mortgage firms on how best to mitigate and manage the risks related to federal government impacted initiatives, said the new presidential administration is making real estate finance players reorient their businesses in fundamental ways. Because navigating Washington is anything but intuitive, the Field Guide helps industry participants understand D.C. and establish a long-term strategic plan to navigate the landscape effectively. 

Washington is complex, interconnected, and has immense influence on real estate. The Field Guide describes the Capitol as “an avian ecosystem where ‘birds of a feather flock together.’ Federal agencies, congressional committees, advocacy organizations, media outlets and a wide variety of other influencers each play a unique role in affecting policy, and together hold massive sway over the industry.”

Industry participants, including lenders, investors, and other stakeholders, can use the Field Guide to best position their businesses for success.
