Mortgages are the largest component of household debt, and the mortgage market influences many aspects of the economy, such as homeownership and wealth accumulation, real estate prices, the structure and risk of the financial sector, and the transmission of monetary policy and macroeconomic shocks.

The Mortgage Market Research Conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of academic research on topics related to mortgages and the mortgage market. The 2024 conference built on the successful first edition of this conference held in 2022. 

This conference was jointly organized by the Philadelphia Fed’s Consumer Finance Institute; Research Department; and Supervision, Regulation, and Credit Department.
