Ira Goldstein, Ph.D., is the President of Policy Solutions at The Reinvestment Fund (TRF), a results-oriented, socially responsible community investment group. Dr. Goldstein has conducted detailed spatial and statistical analyses of housing markets in many cities ranging from Philadelphia to Detroit to San Antonio to New Orleans. Those studies are used by local government to craft policy responses and allocate scarce resources based on local market conditions. He also has conducted studies of mortgage foreclosures and abusive lending practices. His work supported civil rights and consumer protection cases brought by federal, state and local governments. Prior to joining TRF, Dr. Goldstein was the mid-Atlantic Director of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. He is a former member of the Federal Reserve Board’s Consumer Advisory Council and a current member of the Research Advisory Board of the Center for Responsible Lending, Governor of Pennsylvania’s Housing Advisory Committee and the HOPE LoanPort Board. For more than 20 years, Dr. Goldstein has been a Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Urban Studies program.
The Reinvestment Fund completed the Market Valuation Analysis for New Orleans in early 2013. The Market Value Analysis (MVA) is a tool designed to assist the private market and government officials to identify and comprehend the various elements of local real estate markets. It is based fundamentally on local administrative data sources. By using an MVA, public sector officials and private market actors can more precisely craft intervention strategies in weak markets and support sustainable growth in stronger market segments.
