The Miami Heat’s home playoff games are not going to be the only events drawing attention to sunny Miami next week as IMN hosts its annual REO-to-Rental Forum in Miami. As we have previously discussed numerous times (here, here and here, and OnPoint Updates here and here), the REO-to-Rental asset class has become quite a hot topic and this conference is sure to provide invaluable insight into current trends in the market, as well as where market participants see this class of assets going over the near- and far-term.

This year’s panelists appear ready to discuss the many different facets of the REO-to-Rental market and the opportunities and potential pitfalls related to owning and investing in this portion of the market. Some highlights will surely include the panels on Securitizing Rental Streams and Equity and Debt Financing, as well as the panels on Note-to-Rental and Pre-Foreclosure Buying.

As this asset class continues to change and evolve with the broader real estate market, so do the strategies on how to profit from owning REO-to-Rental properties, and this Forum is sure to advance the dialogue surrounding this asset class and those strategies. Dechert will continue to blog from the conference and we hope to see many of you there.
